# Kotlin Program To Find The Area of a Trapezium

In this article, we will understand how to find the area of a trapezium. The area of a trapezium is calculated using the formula.

(height/2 * (side1 + side2))


Below is a demonstration of the same −

Suppose our input is −

side1 = 5
side2 = 6
height = 6


The desired output would be −

Area of trapezium is: 33.0


## Algorithm

• Step 1 − START.

• Step 2 − Declare four integer values namely side1, side2, height and myResult.

• Step 3 − Define the values.

• Step 4 − Calculate the area of the trapezium using the formula (height/2 * (side1 + side2) and store the result.

• Step 5 − Display the result.

• Step 6 − Stop.

## Example 1

In this example, we will find the Area of a Trapezium with the sides and height of the trapezium. First declare and initialize the variables for the sides and height.

val side1 = 5
val side2 = 6
val height = 6


Now, find the Area of a Trapezium using the above formulae −

val myResult = (height/2 * (side1 + side2));


Let us now see the example to find the Area of a Trapezium −

fun main() {
val side1 = 5
val side2 = 6
val height = 6
println("The length of sides of the trapezium are defined as $side1,$side2, $height") val myResult = (height/2 * (side1 + side2)); println("The area of square is:$myResult")
}


## Output

The length of sides of the trapezium are defined as 5, 6, 6
The area of square is: 33


## Example 2

In this example, we will find the Area of a Trapezium.

fun main() {
val side1 = 5
val side2 = 6
val height = 6
println("The length of sides of the trapezium are defined as $side1,$side2, $height") trapeziumArea(side1, side2, height) } fun trapeziumArea(side1: Int, side2: Int, height: Int) { val myResult = (height/2 * (side1 + side2)); println("The area of square is:$myResult")
}


## Output

The length of sides of the trapezium are defined as 5, 6, 6
The area of square is: 33
