Definition

An isosceles trapezoid is a trapezoid with oblique sides congruent

Properties

  1. The oblique sides are congruent
  2. The angles adjacent to their respective bases are congruent
  3. Diagonals are congruent
  4. All the  Generic Trapezoid formulas are valid

Isosceles Trapezoid Formulas
Data Formula
Perimeter 2p = B + b + 2 × S
Area A = [(B + b) × h] / 2
Height h = (2 × A) / (B + b)
Oblique Side S = (2p - B - b) / 2
Oblique side Projection p1 = (B - b) / 2
Sum of bases B + b = (2 × A) / h
Sum of bases B + b = 2p - 2 × S
