The correct answer to this question is D, 217.5. The shape in the illustration provided is a trapezoid. To find the area of a trapezoid, the formula A = a +b / 2 x h can be used. The capital A represents the area we need to solve for. The lowercase a and b represent the bases, while h represents the height.

Using the numbers provided, we can create the following equation A = 9 + 20 / 2 x 15. When we add 9 + 20, divide it by two, and then multiply that number by 15, we would recieve the answer 217.5. This question would be found on a math tests related to solving for area.
