an isosceles trapezoid

The shorter base is 8 units in length

The slant height is 12 units in length.

What is the maximum area that this isosceles trapezoid could have?

You could answer with either an exact number, or an answer

where the value is to the nearest hundredths of square units,

if the exact value is "too cumbersome."
