The two parallel sides of a trapezoid are its bases, b1 and b2
The two parallel sides of a trapezoid are its bases, b1 and b2. The height of a trapezoid is the perpendicular distance between the bases. b2 h b1

In the term b1, the number 1 is called a subscript
In the term b1, the number 1 is called a subscript. It is read as “b-one” or “b sub-one.” Reading Math
