Trapezoids and Kites Chapter 6 Section 6 Tr

A quadrilateral with exactly one pair of parallel sides
Trapezoid A quadrilateral with exactly one pair of parallel sides

Parts of a Trapezoid Base Leg Leg Base Angle Base Base Angle

A trapezoid with congruent legs and congruent base angles.
Isosceles Trapezoid A trapezoid with congruent legs and congruent base angles.

Theorem 6-19 If a quadrilateral is an isosceles trapezoid, then each par of base angles is congruent.

Look at Problems 1 and 2 Try the Got It Problems for those examples.
Turn to Page 390 Look at Problems 1 and 2 Try the Got It Problems for those examples.

Theorem 6-20 If a quadrilateral is an isosceles trapezoid, then its diagonals are congruent.

Midsegment of a Trapezoid
The segment that joins the midpoints of the legs.

If a quadrilateral is a trapezoid, then
Theorem 6-21 If a quadrilateral is a trapezoid, then The midsegment is parallel to the bases The length of the midsegment is half the sum of the lengths of the bases.

Turn to Page 391… Look at Problem 1 Try the Got It Problems for that example.

Kite Quadrilateral with two pairs of consecutive sides congruent and no opposite sides congruent.

If a quadrilateral is a kite, then its diagonals are perpendicular.
Theorem 6-22 If a quadrilateral is a kite, then its diagonals are perpendicular.

Look at Problem 4 Try the Got It for that problem.
