5.11 Properties of Trapezoids and Kites Example 1 Use a coordinate plane Show that CDEF is a trapezoid. Solution Compare the slopes of the opposite sides. The slopes of DE and CF are the same, so DE ___ CF. The slopes of EF and CD are not the same, so EF is ______________ to CD. not parallel Because quadrilateral CDEF has exactly one pair of _______________, it is a trapezoid. parallel sides

5.11 Properties of Trapezoids and Kites Checkpoint. Complete the following exercises. In Example 1, suppose the coordinates of E are (7, 5). What type of quadrilateral is CDEF? Explain. The slopes of DE and CF are the same, so DE ___ CF. The slopes of EF and CD are the same, so EF ___ CD. Because the slopes of DE and CD are not the opposite reciprocals of each other, they are not perpendicular. Therefore the opposite sides are parallel and CDEF is a parallelogram.
