An irregular hexagon 2007-07-03
From Rebecca:
I need to find the shape of an irregular hexagon, but only have the lengths four of the sides.

It actually looks like a rectangle with a trapezoid on top of it.

The bottom of the rectangle is 150'. The sides are 75'. The length of the top is 130'. I do not have the lengths of the two smaller sides.

Is there any way to find the area of this shape?
