In a common

**trapezium**the**opposite angle**are not**equal**. In an isosceles**trapezium**the**opposite angle**are not**equal**however two pairs of adjacent**angles**are**equal**- one pair being acute (at either ends of the longer parallel side), and one pair being obtuse (at either ends of the shorter parallel side).Likewise, which angles of a trapezium are equal?

**Trapezium and Its Properties**

- Angle: The sum of angles in a trapezoid-like other quadrilateral is 360°.
- Two angles on the same side are supplementary, that is the sum of the angles of two adjacent sides is equal to 180°.
- Its diagonals bisect with each other.

Similarly, does a trapezium have equal sides? **Trapezium**. A **trapezium has** one pair of **parallel sides**. Some trapeziums **have** one line of symmetry. They are called isosceles trapeziums as they **have** two **equal sides** like isosceles triangles.

Likewise, people ask, how many sides are equal in trapezium?

four sides

Are diagonals of a trapezium equal?

**Diagonals** are **equal** only in the special case of **trapezium** called **trapezoid** ( or isosceles **trapezium**). It is a characteristic property of **trapezoid**, that the **diagonals** are **equal**. It is not necessary that **diagonals** of all types of **trapezium** are **equal**.
