A nice worksheet that works really well without becoming too repetitive. The questions progress nicely from basic trapeziums to compound shapes and then reverse problems. mlp1freya has provided her part-solutions sheet as described below which I have also uploaded. I have also scrawled some answers on a worksheet for those who need them

Good worksheet, but beware of Q14. If considered as a big triangle subtract a trapezium, the answer is 40cm^2. If considered as 3 triangles added together the answer is 42cm^2. In reality the big triangle isn’t a triangle at all - the top triangle isn't similar to the big 'triangle', so the question can only be done as the sum of 3 triangles - which is not really the point of the question.

This is great. I particularly love the idea of providing model answers for the students to match to the questions. Thank you!
