A trapezoid is a quadrilateral with at least one pair of parallel sides by one definition and by another a trapezoid has exactly one pair of parallel sides.
The portion of the median contained between the diagonals of a trapezoid is equal in length to the difference between the bases of the trapezoid.
The diagonals of an isosceles trapezoid are congruent.

 Trapezoid - MSN Encarta
Trapezoid, in plane geometry, quadrilateral (four-sided) figure with two parallel sides, or bases, of unequal length.
The sides that are not parallel are called legs, and a line from the midpoint of one leg to the midpoint of the other is called the median; the multiplication of the altitude and the median yields the area of the trapezoid.
When the legs of a trapezoid are of equal length, the figure is called an isosceles trapezoid.

 Trapezoid   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-05)
Trapezoid is a convex quadrilateral with exactly one pair of parallel sides.
Altitude (or height) is the segment perpendicular to the bases, and median is the segment connecting the midpoints of the legs.
Trapezoid with congruent legs is an isosceles trapezoid.

 Trapezoid - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A trapezoid (in North America) or trapezium (in Britain and elsewhere) is a quadrilateral two of whose sides are parallel to each other.
Another necessary and sufficient condition is that the diagonals cut each other in mutually the same ratio; this ratio is the same as that between the lengths of the parallel sides.
The area of a trapezoid can be computed as the length of the midsegment, multiplied by the distance along a perpendicular line between the parallel sides.
