## How do you construct a trapezium in Class 8?

Construction of a trapezium

- Steps of construction:
- Step 1: Draw PQ = 8cm.
- Step 2: At Q, draw ∠PQX = 60°.
- Step 3: From ray QX, cut off QR = 6 cm.
- Step 4: At R, draw ∠QRY = 120°
- Step 5: From ray RY, cut off RS = 4 cm.
- Step 6: Join SP. PQRS is the required trapezoid.

## How do you make a perfect trapezium?

- Draw a rectangle.
- Switch to the hollow(Direct) select tool.
- Drag an drop a selection over 2 corners of your rectangle (2 selected vector points will be solid, the hollow ones are not selected and remain stationary)
- Switch to scale tool, hold down shift and scale.
- Nudge your selection if needed.

## What is trapezium diagram?

A trapezium, also known as a trapezoid, is a quadrilateral in which a pair of sides are parallel, but the other pair of opposite sides are non-parallel. The area of a trapezium is computed with the following formula: Area = 1 2 × Sum of parallel sides × Distance between them .

## How do you draw a trapezium with 4 sides?

Draw line segment AB = 6 cm. Mark a point E on AB such that AE = DC = 4 cm. Draw an arc with E as the centre and radius 5 cm. Draw another arc with B as the centre and radius 4 cm, cutting the previous arc at C.

## How do you draw a trapezium ABCD?

Expert Answer:

- Draw AB = 7 cm.
- Draw angle B=60º on side BA.
- Mark point C on other arm of angle B such that BC = 5 cm.
- CD || AB, so angle B + angle C = 180o, angle C = 120o …..interior angles.
- Draw angle C =120º
- Extend the other arm of the angle, now from A cut an arc on this extended arm taking length 6.5 cm.

## What is a trapezium and draw its figure?

A trapezium is a 2d shape and a type of quadrilateral, which has only two parallel sides and the other two sides are non-parallel. The interior angles of the quadrilateral are equal to 360 degrees. Just like other four-sided polygons, a trapezium also has area and perimeter.
