7Example 1: Problem-Solving Application Lucy is framing a kite with wooden dowels. She uses two dowels that measure 18 cm, one dowel that measures 30 cm, and two dowels that measure 27 cm. To complete the kite, she needs a dowel to place along . She has a dowel that is 36 cm long. About how much wood will she have left after cutting the last dowel?
9Example 2What if...? Daryl is going to make a kite by doubling all the measures in the kite. What is the total amount of binding needed to cover the edges of his kite? How many packages of binding must Daryl buy?
16Example 5bIn kite PQRS, mPQR = 78°, and mTRS = 59°. Find each mPSR.
17A trapezoid is a quadrilateral with exactly one pair of parallel sides A trapezoid is a quadrilateral with exactly one pair of parallel sides. Each of the parallel sides is called a base. The nonparallel sides are called legs. Base angles of a trapezoid are two consecutive angles whose common side is a base.
18If the legs of a trapezoid are congruent, the trapezoid is an isosceles trapezoid. The following theorems state the properties of an isosceles trapezoid.
24Example 10: Applying Conditions for Isosceles Trapezoids Find the value of a so that PQRS is isosceles.
25Example 11: Applying Conditions for Isosceles Trapezoids AD = 12x – 11, and BC = 9x – 2. Find the value of x so that ABCD is isosceles.
26Example 12Find the value of x so that PQST is isosceles.
27The midsegment of a trapezoid is the segment whose endpoints are the midpoints of the legs. In Lesson 5-1, you studied the Triangle Midsegment Theorem. The Trapezoid Midsegment Theorem is similar to it.
