To find the area ( A ) of a trapezoid, you can use the formula:

[ A = \frac{1}{2} \times \text{height} \times (\text{base}_1 + \text{base}_2) ]

Substitute the given values:

[ A = \frac{1}{2} \times \frac{1}{4} \times (2 + 3) ]

Simplify and calculate the area:

[ A = \frac{1}{2} \times \frac{1}{4} \times 5 ]

[ A = \frac{5}{8} \text{ square feet} ]

Therefore, the area of the trapezoid is ( \frac{5}{8} ) square feet.
