# If M N ↔ ∥ P Q ↔  in ⊙ O , explain why M N P Q is an isosceles trapezoid.(HINT: Draw a diagonal.) To determine

To explain:

The MNPQ is an isosceles trapezoid by using the provided figure.

Explanation

Given:

The MNPQ, in O shown below.

Postulate used:

Theorem:

The measure of an inscribed angles is equal to the one-half the measure of its intercepted arc.

If AB and BC intersect only at point, then mAB+mBC=mABC.

Calculation:

Since, M and P both are inscribed angles and NPQ and QMN are intercepted arcs.

Since, there is a theorem state that the measure of an inscribed angles is equal to the one-half the measure of its intercepted arc.

M=12(mNPQ)P=12(mQMN)
