## How To Find Midsegment Of A Trapezoid?

A trapezoid midsegment connects the midpoints of the two congruent sides of the trapezoid and is parallel to the pair of parallel sides. The length of the midsegment is **the sum of the two bases divided by 2**. Remember that the bases of a trapezoid are the two parallel sides.

## What is the formula for Midsegment?

A midsegment connecting two sides of a triangle is parallel to the third side and is half as long. then **¯DE∥¯BC and DE=12BC .**

## What is the trapezoid Midsegment Theorem?

**the length of the midsegment is equal to the sum of the base lengths divided by 2**. In other words the midsegment is the average length of the two bases.

## How do you find the Midsegment of a trapezoid with vertices?

## How do you find the missing length of a trapezoid?

## How do you describe median of a trapezoid?

A median of a trapezoid is **the segment that joins the midpoints of the nonparallel sides (legs)**. Theorem: The median of a trapezoid is parallel to each base and the length of the median equals one-half the sum of the lengths of the two bases.

## Can you write an area formula for a trapezoid in terms of its Midsegment length?

**A=½(AB+DC)·h**looks very similar to the formula for the length of the midsegment – |EF| = ½(AB+DC) and made a substitution that resulted in a very compact elegant solution.

## What are the two bases of a trapezoid?

**The parallel sides are**called the bases of the trapezoid and the other two sides are called the legs or the lateral sides (if they are not parallel otherwise there are two pairs of bases).
