## Trapezium

 Area of Trapezium

 Before you study what is trapezium, you are advised to read: What is Quadrilateral ? What are Parallel Lines ? Trapezium is a quadrilateral in which a pair of sides is parallel to each other. Or we can say, Trapezium is a quadrilateral having a pair of parallel sides. We can also say that: In Trapezium, two opposite side are parallel and other two opposite sides are unparalleled. Observe the following diagram 1: In the above diagram, you can observe that: ABCD is quadrilateral Side AD is parallel to Side BC (symbol '|' indicate parallel lines) Side AB and DC are non parallel Hence, we can say that Quadrilateral ABCD is a trapezium. Following are some more sample diagrams of trapezium: Trapezium PQRS has PS and QR as parallel lines (symbol '|' indicate parallel lines) Trapezium MNOP has PM and NO as parallel lines (symbol '|' indicate parallel lines) Trapezium WXYZ has WX and YZ as parallel lines (symbol '|' indicate parallel lines)
