A trapezoid is a quadrilateral with one pair of opposite sides parallel. It can have right angles (a right trapezoid), and it can have congruent sides (isosceles), but those are not required.
Likewise, how many sides does a trapezoid have and corners?
In 2-dimentional shapes, the point where two sides meet is called a corner, or a vertex. Since trapezoids are quadrilaterals, they have four sides, which means that they also have four corners, or vertices. In order to be considered a trapezoid, a shape must have four sides, and at least one set that is parallel.
What are the characteristics of a trapezoid?
Properties of the sides of an isosceles trapezoid: The bases (top and bottom) of an isosceles trapezoid are parallel. Opposite sides of an isosceles trapezoid are the same length (congruent). The angles on either side of the bases are the same size/measure (congruent).
