The trapezoid is a quadrilateral polygon, which has two opposite parallel sides and two non-parallel opposite sides. The parallel sides are the biggest and smallest bases. There are three types of trapezoids: rectangle, isosceles and scalene. Below you can learn more about each of these types of trapezoids.
- Rectangle trapezoid
The rectangle trapezoid is a trapezoid in which a side is perpendicular to both bases.
- Isosceles trapezoid
The isosceles trapezoid is a trapezoid in which the opposite two parallel sides are not equal.
- Scalene trapezoid
The scalene trapezoid is a trapezoid in which all sides have different measures.
