In the drawing, A B ↔   | |     D C ↔     | |       E F ↔ with transversals l and m. If D and C are the midpoints of A E ¯ and B F ¯ , respectively, then is trapezoid ABCD similar to trapezoid DCFE? To determine

To check:

Whether the trapezoid ABCD is similar to DCFE or not

Explanation

Given:

In the figure, AB||DC||EF with transversals l and m. If D and C are the midpoints of AE¯ and BF¯.

Approach:

Two trapezoids are similar if and only if two conditions are satisfied:

1. Three or more parallel lines intercept congruent line segments on one transversal.

2. The intercept congruent line segments on any transversal.

Proof:

Let us consider the trapezoids, ABCD is similar to DCFE
