Hi everyone and welcome to Math Sux! In this post, we are going to look at how to use and applythe median of a trapezoid theorem. Thankfully, it is not a scary formula, and one we can easily master with a dose of algebra. The only hard part remaining, is remembering this thing! Take a look below to see a step by step tutorial on how to use the median of a trapezoid theorem and check out the practice questions at the end of this post to truly master the topic. Happy calculating! 🙂

**Step 1**: Let’s apply the Median of a Trapezoid Theorem to this question! A little rusty? No problem, check out the Theorem below.

**Median of a Trapezoid Theorem**: The median of a trapezoid is equal to the sum of both bases.**Step 2**: Now that we found the value of x , we can plug it back into the equation for median, to find the value of median
