Trapezium

Description: 

Every quadrilateral which has one parallel sides at least, like rhombus, parallelogram, rectangle and square is also trapezium.


If trapezium hasn’t got any parallel sides, it is trapezoid.



Types of Trapeziums:

Isosceles Trapezium: It is a trapezium which has two equal sides



Right Trapezium: It is a trapezium which has one right angle at least.




Properties of Angles in a Trapezium:

  • Sum of measurment of all angles in trapezium equals 360o
  • In isosceles trapezium angles near the base are equal

               * example


  • Sum of measurement of two interior angles near an trapezium's arm equals 180o
