1. What lines can you draw that will separate the trapezium into right angled triangles? Can you use Pythagoras to form equations in k and then solve for k?

split the trapezium into a square and a triangle, should be easy to use pythagoras from there and work out the value of k.

I'm not too sure. I know that you need to separate them but not sure how.

split the shape vertically to form two shapes, a square and a triangle. in this way you can find the other sizes
