<p>Notice that the line divides the trapezoid into two triangles: one triangle with base <code>b_1 = <var>B1</var></code>, and another triangle with base <code>b_2 = <var>B2</var></code>. Both triangles have height <code>h = <var>H</var></code>.</p>
- <p>The area of the trapezoid is equal to the sum of the areas of the two trapezoids.</p>
+ <p>The area of the trapezoid is equal to the sum of the areas of the two triangles.</p>
<p><code>A = \dfrac12 \cdot b_1 \cdot h + \dfrac12 \cdot b_2 \cdot h</code></p>
<p>Factor out <code>\dfrac12 \cdot h</code> to get the formula for the area of a trapezoid:</p>
<p><code>A = \dfrac12 \cdot h \cdot (b_1 + b_2) = \dfrac12 \cdot (b_1 + b_2) \cdot h</code></p>
