Trapezoid Midsegment Properties

The midsegment of a trapezoid is the line that connects the midpoints of the two nonparallel sides of the trapezoid.

The midsegment of a trapezoid has two special properties:
  • The midsegment of a trapezoid is parallel to each base.
  • The length of the midsegment of a trapezoid is equal to half the sum of the lengths of its bases.

Find a, x and y.

x = 55º
y + 120º = 180º. Therefore y = 60º
