To find the length of the other base of the trapezoid, use the formula for the area of a trapezoid:

[ \text{Area} = \frac{1}{2} \times \text{(sum of bases)} \times \text{height} ]

Substitute the given values into the formula:

[ 176 = \frac{1}{2} \times (7 + \text{length of other base}) \times 16 ]

Solve for the length of the other base:

[ 176 = \frac{1}{2} \times (7 + \text{length of other base}) \times 16 ] [ 176 = 8 \times (7 + \text{length of other base}) ] [ 22 = 7 + \text{length of other base} ]

Subtract 7 from both sides:

[ \text{length of other base} = 22 - 7 = 15 ]

Therefore, the length of the other base of the trapezoid is 15 feet.

When evaluating a one-sided limit, you need to be careful when a quantity is approaching zero since its sign is different depending on which way it is approaching zero from. Let us look at some examples.
