Consider the formula for the area of a trapezoid: A=12h(a+b) . Is it mathematically simpler to solve

Consider the formula for the area of a trapezoid: A=12h(a+b) . Is it mathematically simpler to solve for a, b, or h? Why? Solve for each of these variables to demonstrate.
The variable "h" is the easiest to solve for. Because you only have one step. Let's review:
Divide each side of the equation by 12(a + b)
h = 12(a + b)/A
Solving for "a", we two steps. Divide each side by 12h:
A/12h = a + b
Subtract b from each side
a = A/12h - b
Solving for "b" takes two steps as well. Divide each side by 12h:
A/12h = a + b
Subtract a from each side
b = A/12h - a

Fantasia decided to paint her circular room which had a diameter of 25 feet. She started painting in the center and when she had painted a circle with a 5-foot diameter, she used one quart of paint. How many more quarts of paint must Fantasia buy to finish her room?
The area formula for a circle is:
Area = pir^2
Area of full room
Radius = D/2
Radius = 25/2
Radius = 12.5
Area = 3.1415 * 12.5 * 12.5
Area = 490.625
Area of 5-foot diameter circle
Radius = D/2
Radius = 5/2
Radius = 2.5
Area = 3.1415 * 2.5 * 2.5
Area = 19.625
So 1 quart of paint covers 19.625 square feet
Area of unpainted room = Area of Room - Area of 5-foot diameter circle
Area of unpainted room = 490.625 - 19.625
Area of unpainted room = 471
Calculate quarts of paint needed:
Quarts of paint needed = Area of unpainted Room / square feet per quart of paint
Quarts of paint needed = 471/19.625

If 800 feet of fencing is available, find the maximum area that can be enclosed.

If 800 feet of fencing is available, find the maximum area that can be enclosed.
Perimeter of a rectangle is:
2l + 2w = P
However, we're given one side (length) is bordered by the river and the fence length is 800, so we have:
So we have l + 2w = 800
Rearranging in terms of l, we have:
l = 800 - 2w
The Area of a rectangle is:
A = lw
Plug in the value for l in the perimeter into this:
A = (800 - 2w)w
A = 800w - 2w^2
Take the [URL='https://www.mathcelebrity.com/dfii.php?term1=800w+-+2w%5E2&fpt=0&ptarget1=0&ptarget2=0&itarget=0%2C1&starget=0%2C1&nsimp=8&pl=1st+Derivative']first derivative[/URL]:
A' = 800 - 4w
Now set this equal to 0 for maximum points:
4w = 800
[URL='https://www.mathcelebrity.com/1unk.php?num=4w%3D800&pl=Solve']Typing this equation into the search engine[/URL], we get:
w = 200
Now plug this into our perimeter equation:
l = 800 - 2(200)
l = 800 - 400
l = 400
The maximum area to be enclosed is;
A = lw
A = 400(200)
A = [B]80,000 square feet[/B]

Laura found a roll of fencing in her garage. She couldn't decide whether to fence in a square garden

Laura found a roll of fencing in her garage. She couldn't decide whether to fence in a square garden or a round garden with the fencing.
Laura did some calculations and found that a circular garden would give her 1380 more square feet than a square garden. How many feet of fencing were in the roll that Laura found? (Round to the nearest foot.)
Feet of fencing = n
Perimeter of square garden = n
Each side of square = n/4
Square garden's area = (n/4)^2 = n^2/16
Area of circle garden with circumference = n is:
Circumference = pi * d
n = pi * d
Divide body tissues by pi:
d = n/pi
Radius = n/2pi
Area = pi * n/2pi * n/2pi
Area = pin^2/4pi^2
Reduce by canceling pi:
n^2/4pi
n^2/4 * 3.14
n^2/12.56
The problem says that the difference between the square's area and the circle's area is equal to 1380 square feet.
Area of Circle - Area of Square = 1380
n^2/12.56 - n^2/16 = 1380
Common denominator = 200.96
(16n^2 - 12.56n^2)/200.96 = 1380
3.44n^2/200.96 = 1380
Cross multiply:
3.44n^2 = 277,324.8
n^2 = 80,617.7
n = 283.9

Math Written Assignment

Im sorta confused about this question?
He has decided to remove all the old sod (grass), bring in a new 4 inch layer of topsoil, install new in-ground sprinklers, and reseed the lawn. He seems to think that he'll be able to save money by hauling loads of topsoil from the store himself in his pickup truck, rather than paying for delivery, but I don't think he's right. You're going to help us settle this.
Here is (most of) the information you asked for:
[LIST]
[*]Is he redoing the whole yard or just the front?
He's redoing the whole yard
[*]How much topsoil does he need?
I'm not sure, you'll have to figure that out. Remember he's putting a new 4 inch layer down over all the area currently covered by grass in the overhead picture above.
[*]How big is the yard?
I'm not sure, but you can probably estimate it using the overhead picture.
[*]What kind of pickup truck does he drive?
A 2003 Ford F-150 XL.
[*]How much can the pickup carry?
The truck bed is 80 inches long, 69 inches wide, and 20 inches tall.
[*]How much is the delivery charge?
$30 per truckload on top of the soil cost. Each truckload can deliver up to 18 cubic yards.
[*]How much does the topsoil cost?
$18 per cubic yard (sold in 1/4 yard increments).
[*]How far is the soil store?
It is 9 miles away. It takes about 20 minutes to drive there.
[*]What gas mileage does the pickup truck get?
It averages 17 miles to the gallon.
[*]What is the current gas cost?
Assume it's $3.79/gallon.

The base of a triangle with a height of 7 units is represented by the formula b=2/7A. The base of the triangle is less than 10 units. Write and solve an inequality that represents the possible area A of the triangle
We're given:
b=2/7A
We're also told that b is less than 10. So we have:
2/7A < 10
2A/7 < 10
Cross multiply:
2A < 7 * 10
2A < 70
Divide each side of the inequality by 2 to isolate A
2A/2 < 70/2
Cancel the 2's on the left side and we get:

a. Express the new length and the new width in terms of x.
b. Express the new area of the rectangle in terms of x.
c. Find the value of x.
Calculate the current area. Using our [URL='https://www.mathcelebrity.com/rectangle.php?l=30&w=18&a=&p=&pl=Calculate+Rectangle']rectangle calculator with length = 30 and width = 18[/URL], we get:
A = 540
a) Decrease length by x and increase width by x, and we get:
[LIST]
[*]length = [B]30 - x[/B]
[*]width = [B]18 + x[/B]
[/LIST]
b) Our new area using the lw = A formula is:
(30 - x)(18 + x) = 540 + 35
Multiplying through and simplifying, we get:
540 - 18x + 30x - x^2 = 575
[B]-x^2 + 12x + 540 = 575[/B]
c) We have a quadratic equation. To solve this, [URL='https://www.mathcelebrity.com/quadratic.php?num=-x%5E2%2B12x%2B540%3D575&pl=Solve+Quadratic+Equation&hintnum=+0']we type it in our search engine, choose solve[/URL], and we get:
[B]x = 5 or x = 7[/B]
Trying x = 5, we get:
A = (30 - 5)(18 + 5)
A = 25 * 23
A = 575
Now let's try x = 7:
A = (30 - 7)(18 + 7)
A = 23 * 25
A = 575
They both check out.
So we can have

The length of a wooden frame is 1 foot longer than its width and its area is equal to 12ft²

The length of a wooden frame is 1 foot longer than its width and its area is equal to 12ft²
The frame is a rectangle. The area of a rectangle is A = lw. So were given:
[LIST=1]
[*]l = w + 1
[*]lw = 12
[/LIST]
Substitute equation (1) into equation (2) for l:
(w + 1) * w = 12
Multiply through and simplify:
w^2 + w = 12
We have a quadratic equation. To solve for w, we type this equation into our search engine and we get two solutions:
w = 3
w = -4
Since width cannot be negative, we choose the positive result and have:
w = [B]3[/B]
To solve for length, we plug w = 3 into equation (1) above and get:
l = 3 + 1
l = [B]4[/B]

The moon's diameter is 2,159 miles. What is the surface area of the moon? Round to the nearest mile.

The moon's diameter is 2,159 miles. What is the surface area of the moon? Round to the nearest mile.
The moon is a sphere. So our Surface Area formula is:
S =4pir^2
If diameter is 2,159, then radius is 2,159/2 = 1079.5. Plug this into the Surface Area of a sphere formula:
S = 4 * pi * 1079.5^2
S = 4 * pi *1165320.25
S = 4661281 pi
S = [B]14,643,846.15 square miles[/B]

Substitute the height equation into the area equation
1/2b(b + 70) = 3000
Multiply each side by 2
b^2 + 70b = 6000
Subtract 6000 from each side:
b^2 + 70b - 6000 = 0
Using our [URL='http://www.mathcelebrity.com/quadratic.php?num=b%5E2%2B70b-6000%3D0&pl=Solve+Quadratic+Equation&hintnum=+0']quadratic calculator[/URL], we get:
b = 50 and b = -120
Since the base cannot be negative, we use b = 50.
If b = 50, then h = 50 + 70 = 120
The perimeter is b + h + hypotenuse
Using the [URL='http://www.mathcelebrity.com/righttriangle.php?angle_a=&a=70&angle_b=&b=50&c=&pl=Calculate+Right+Triangle']right-triangle calculator[/URL], we get hypotenuse = 86.02
