Trapezing The Parabola (Posted on 2007-12-01) Difficulty: 3 of 5
The two diagonals PR and QS of a trapezoid PQRS intersect at the point (1, 0) and PS is parallel to QR. All the four vertices of the trapezoid lie on the parabola y2 = 4x and PR = QS = 100/9.

Determine the area of the trapezoid PQRS.
