# How do you divide a triangle into 2 triangles and 2 trapezoids?

Let's assume the triangle has points A, B, and C.

Method 1 (3 lines)

Draw two lines across the triangle parallel to line segment AB. Now you have two trapezoids and one triangle. Draw another line from C to the any point on the closest of the two lines you just drew, splitting the triangle into two more triangles.

Method 2 (2 lines)

Draw one line across the triangle parallel to line segment AB. Now you have one trapezoid and one triangle. Draw a second line that passes through C and is perpendicular to AB, splitting the trapezoid into two trapezoids and the triangle into 2 triangles.

Method 3 (3 lines)

Draw one line from point C to any point on line segment AB. Then draw a line parallel to AC and one parallel to BC, but don't let them cross the line you just drew. Study guides
