Median of a Trapezoid
How to solve the median of a trapezoid problems: properties, example, and its solution.
The median of a trapezoid is a line segment
whose endpoints are the midpoints of the legs.
The median of a trapezoid has two properties.
The median is parallel to the bases.
The length of the median
is the mean of the bases' lengths.
Bases: 3, 7
x = (1/2)(3 + 7)
Bases: x, 12
9 = (1/2)(x + 12)
