I think this is geometry so..yeah. I honestly don't know how to do this and I can't really understand what to do..If y'all can answer this right now, I would be very greatful but I understand everyone is probably busy so here's the question.

It looks like you're given the height, base1, and the area. You just need to find base 2. Do you know the formula for the area of a trapezoid? It would help to know whether you're having trouble setting the problem up, or solving the equation for the base.
