**Trapezoids and Kites**1/16/13 Mrs. B**Objectives:**• Use properties of trapezoids. • Use properties of kites.**A trapezoid is a quadrilateral with exactly one pair of**parallel sides called bases. A trapezoid has two pairs of base angles. Ex. D and C And A and B. The nonparallel sides are the legs of the trapezoid. Using properties of trapezoids**If the legs of a trapezoid are congruent, then the trapezoid**is an isosceles trapezoid. Using properties of trapezoids**If a trapezoid is isosceles, then each pair of base angles**is congruent. A ≅ B, C ≅ D Isosceles Trapezoid**If a trapezoid is isosceles, then adjacent angles (not**bases) are supplementary. <A + <D = 180 <B + <C = 80 Isosceles Trapezoid**Given, angle X is 50**Find <R, < P and <Q, Ex. 1: Using properties of Isosceles Trapezoids 50°**A trapezoid is isosceles if and only if its diagonals are**congruent. ABCD is isosceles if and only if AC ≅ BD. Isosceles Trapezoid**The midsegment of a trapezoid is the segment that connects**the midpoints of its legs. Midsegment of a trapezoid**The midsegment of a trapezoid is parallel to each base and**its length is one half the sums of the lengths of the bases. MN║AD, MN║BC MN = ½ (AD + BC) Theorem 6.17: Midsegment of a trapezoid**LAYER CAKE A baker is making a cake like the one at the**right. The top layer has a diameter of 8 inches and the bottom layer has a diameter of 20 inches. How big should the middle layer be? Ex. 3: Finding Midsegment lengths of trapezoids**Use the midsegment theorem for trapezoids.**DG = ½(EF + CH)= ½ (8 + 20) = 14” Ex. 3: Finding Midsegment lengths of trapezoids E F D G D C**A kite is a quadrilateral that has two pairs of consecutive**congruent sides, but opposite sides are not congruent. Using properties of kites**Theorem 6.18**If a quadrilateral is a kite, then its diagonals are perpendicular. AC BD Kite theorems**Theorem 6.19**If a quadrilateral is a kite, then exactly one pair of opposite angles is congruent. A ≅ C B not =D Kite theorems**WXYZ is a kite so the diagonals are perpendicular. You can**use the Pythagorean Theorem to find the side lengths. WX = XY = Ex. 4: Using the diagonals of a kite**Ex. 5: Angles of a kite**• Find mG and mJ in the diagram. 132° 60°
