In which type of trapezoid do the diagonals bisect one another? A) any trapezoid B) isosceles trapezoid C) right trapezoid D) no trapezoid

OpenStudy (anonymous):

isosceles trapezoid, since it's symmetrical.

OpenStudy (anonymous):

okay thanks

OpenStudy (anonymous):

hold on... with all due respect, i don't think that's the right answer: |dw:1338072575212:dw|

OpenStudy (anonymous):

okay than is it no trapezoid

OpenStudy (anonymous):

what's a right trapezoid?

OpenStudy (anonymous):

Right Trapezoid is a trapezoid that contains an angle measure of 90 degrees |dw:1338072737019:dw|

OpenStudy (anonymous):

oh ok then... i would choose none then.

OpenStudy (anonymous):

OOPS! Mea culpa, diagonals will be congruent in an isosceles trapezium but do not bisect each other.

OpenStudy (anonymous):

so its no trapezoid

OpenStudy (anonymous):

Yes that makes "No trapezoid" the right answer.

OpenStudy (anonymous):

correct.

OpenStudy (anonymous):

okay thanks

OpenStudy (anonymous):

can i get help on a other question

OpenStudy (anonymous):

Sure, Please start a new thread.

OpenStudy (anonymous):

i don't like this problem becuase some definitions of make a rectangle a trapezoid... in which case the diagnols do bisect each other.

OpenStudy (anonymous):

Using trapezoid GHIJ, solve for x. 8 10 0 6

OpenStudy (anonymous):

and i think a rectangle is a trapezoid with my definition.

OpenStudy (anonymous):

A quadrilateral is called a trapezium if two of the opposite sides are parallel but the other two sides are not parallel.

OpenStudy (anonymous):

Hence rectangle is not a trapezoid.

OpenStudy (anonymous):

so is my answer zero
