# The diagonals of an isosceles trapezoid are mutually perpendicular. The bases are 4 and 6. Find the height

October 8, 2021 | education

| Let’s calculate what the height of an isosceles trapezoid will equal (so its diagonals are mutually perpendicular, then its height will be equal to the sum of the bases divided by two), if we know, based on the conditions of this task, that the first of the two bases is equal to four conventional units, and the second base is equal to six conventional units:

(6 + 4): 2 = 10/2 = 5.

Answer: The height of this geometric figure – an isosceles trapezoid, will be equal to 5 conventional units.
