Properties of Kites and Trapezoids
if a trapezoid has a pair of congruent
base angles, then it is an isosceles
trapezoid.

*ABCD is an isosceles trapezoid.

A B

D C
a trapezoid is isosceles if and
only if its diagonals are congruent.

*ABCD is an isosceles trapezoid if and
only if its diagonals are congruent.

*ABCD is isosceles if and only if AC
BD.

D C
Example 1:
PQRS is an isosceles trapezoid . Find m<P, m<Q, and m<R.

S R

50

P Q
PQRS is an isosceles trapezoid, so m<R=m<S= 50 degrees. <S and <P are consecutive interior angles formed by the parallel lines, they are supplementary. So, m<P=130 degrees, m<Q=m<Q=130 degrees.
Trapezoid :
*A trapezoid is a quadrilateral with exactly one pair of parallel sides.
*The parallel sides of a trapezoids are bases.
*The legs are the nonparallel sides of a trapezoid.
Isosceles Trapezoid :
* An isosceles trapezoid is a trapezoid with congruent legs.
Midsegment:
*the midsegment of a trpezoid is the segment that connects the midpoints of its legs.
*theorem 6.17 is similar to the Midsegment Theorem for triangles.

A B

midsegment

D C
Theorem 6.17
*the midsegment of a trapezoid is the parallel to each base and its length is one half the sum of the lengths of the bases.

D C
*Theorem 6.18: if a quadrilateral is a kite,
the its diagonals are perpendicular.
-AC

BD

*Theorem 6.19: if a quadrilateral is a kite,
then exactly one pair of oppisite angles are
congruent.
-<A <C,<B

<D
Example 2:
Find m<A and m<C in the diagram.
132
60
GHJK is a kite, so <G = <J and m<G=m<J

2(m<G)+132 +60 =360

-sum of measures of int.<s of a quad. is 360

2(m<G)=168

-simplify

2 2

m<G=84

-divided each side by 2

*so, m<J= m<G=84
