The parallel sides of a trapezoid are called bases.
VOCABULARY 6-6 TRAPEZOIDS and KITES A trapezoid is a quadrilateral with exactly one pair of parallel sides. The parallel sides of a trapezoid are called bases. The nonparallel sides are called legs. The two s that share a base of a trapezoid are called base angles. A trapezoid has two pairs of base s. An isosceles trapezoid is a trapezoid with legs that are ≅. A kite is a quadrilateral with two pairs of consecutive sides ≅ and no opposite sides ≅. A midsegment of a trapezoid is the segment that joins the midpoints of its legs.

∴ In each region, the s are either supplementary or ≅.
6-6 TRAPEZOIDS and KITES OBJECTIVES: To verify and use the properties of trapezoids and kites. Two isosceles triangles form the figure below. Each white segment is a midsegment of a triangle. What can you determine about the angles in region 2? In region 3? Explain. The midsegment of each isosceles is ‖ to its base, so same-side interior s are supplementary. Since base s in an isosceles are ≅, so the s sharing the midsegment of each are ≅. ∴ In each region, the s are either supplementary or ≅.

Investigating the Diagonals of Isosceles Trapezoids
6-6 TRAPEZOIDS and KITES OBJECTIVE: To verify and use the properties of trapezoids and kites. Investigating the Diagonals of Isosceles Trapezoids Choose from a variety of tools (such as a protractor, a ruler, or a compass) to investigate patterns in the diagonals of isosceles trapezoid PQRS. Explain your choice. Do your observations support your conjecture in Problem 3? Explain your reasoning. In Problem 3 (HH): Use a protractor to measure the s formed by the diagonals and a compass to check if the diagonals are ≅. Answer: Use a ruler to measure the segments. 𝑷𝑹=𝑸𝑺, 𝐭𝐡𝐮𝐬 𝑷𝑹 ≅ 𝑸𝑺. This supports the conjecture that if a quadrilateral is an isosceles trapezoid, then the diagonals are congruent.

No. No, a kite’s opposite sides are not ‖ or ≅ .
6-6 TRAPEZOIDS and KITES OBJECTIVE: To verify and use the properties of trapezoids and kites. 4. Vocabulary Is a kite a parallelogram? Explain. No, a kite’s opposite sides are not ‖ or ≅ . 5. Analyze Mathematical Relationships (1)(F) How is a kite similar to a rhombus? How is it different? Explain. Similar: Their diagonals are ⏊. Different: Only one diagonal of a kite bisects opposite s; a rhombus has all sides ≅. 6. Evaluate Reasonableness (1)(B) Since a parallelogram has two pairs of parallel sides, it certainly has one pair of parallel sides. Therefore, a parallelogram must also be a trapezoid. Is this reasoning correct? Explain. No. A trapezoid is defined as a quad. with exactly 1 pair of ‖ sides and a parallelogram has exactly 2 pairs of ‖ sides, so a parallelogram is not a trapezoid.
