    Definition: A quadrilateral with 1 pair of parallel sides.


     Mid segment Theorem:


   Theorem 1: Exactly 2 pairs of consecutive angles are supplementary.

             Quadrilateral -- Trapezoid

           mÐA + mÐB = 180         mÐC + mÐD = 1800

        Isosceles Trapezoid:

          Definition: A trapezoid with the opposite non-parallel sides being congruent.


          Theorem 1: Base angles are congruent


          Theorem 2: Diagonals are congruent



    Definition: A quadrilateral where both pairs of consecutive sides are congruent, but opposite sides are NOT congruent.
