Trapezoids Talk- A paper by Michael Keyton by Total Gadha - W e dne sday, 24 Se pte m be r 2008, 07:25 PM

While I am busy writing the next article for TG.com, here is an offering by another mathematician, Michael Keyton of Illinois Mathematics and Science Academy. In this paper, Mr. Keyton discusses about the properties of a trapezium. Some of the properties are known whereas many of these are unknown. I discovered the paper while searching for one of the properties of the trapezium, namely the sum of the squares of the diagonals of a trapezium. Mr. Keyton has graciously given us the permission to publish the paper on TG. So here is it everyone, the complete compendium of the properties of a trapezium. Include them in your armory of formula.

Here are a few other definitions that I offer. The diacenter of a quadrilateral is the intersection point of the diagonals. A quord of a quadrilateral is a segment with endpoints on two sides of a quadrilateral. A median is a quord with endpoints the midpoints on opposite sides.

Hi TG, I guess there is some error in the 3rd property mentioned (High-school) where it says the Area = Half of (Height x Median), which should be Half of (Height x Median). Thanks

Re: Trapezoids Talk- A paper by Michael Keyton by Mou Suk oshi - Tue sday, 30 Se pte m be r 2008, 11:21 AM Sir, Thank s a lot for such a nice article . But I have a fe w confusions. 1> From 15 b) W hat are harm onic se ts? 2> O n the ne t, I found 2 contradictory de finitions for trape zoid and trape zium . British Trapezoid A quadrilate ral with no side s paralle l USA A quadrilate ral with one pair of paralle l side s

Trapezium A quadrilate ral with one pair of paralle l side s A quadrilate ral with no side s paralle l In school, we le arnt the British de fn. I am confuse d as to which de fn is to be followe d for C AT? O r can we inte rchange ably use trape zoid and trape zium to m e an a quadrilate ral with atle ast one pair of paralle l side s?

This se e m s to m e that it contradicts m y intuition (it doe snt follow rule of sym m e try) W hat I m e an by sym m e try is that the rule doe snt ide ntifie s in itse lf that why LA/LB = AB/C D wont hold true why only LB/LA = AB/C D is true . The se cond one look s pe rfe ct (HA/HC = AB/C D) from that point of vie w. C an you ple ase clarify. Also I fe e l that TG is a little slow, tak e s com parative ly m ore tim e to upload in a browse r. So if possible do som e thing about it. Its a fe e dback from m y side be cause I love your we bsite -abhim anyu

Re: Trapezoids Talk- A paper by Michael Keyton by santhana lak shm anan - Tue sday, 15 Se pte m be r 2009, 05:47 AM Hi TG, In point(15) shouldn't the form ula LB/LC be actually LB/LA..C orre ct m e if I am wrong..

Re: Trapezoids Talk- A paper by Michael Keyton by Subhash Me dhi - Sunday, 20 June 2010, 11:43 PM De ar TG sir, I think pre vious form ula give n in point(15) was corre ct. It should be LB/LC = AB/C D and not LB/LA = AB/C D. Triangle s, LAB and LDC are sim ilar. So, it follows naturally.Kindly corre ct m e if i am wrong. R e gards, Subhash
