Best Answer

A trapezoidal pyramid, better known as a trapezoid-based pyramid, is a pyramid with a trapezoid as it's base. So basically it would have a trapezoid at the bottom, and 4 triangles coming out from the edges to meet at a point at the top. It's really very simple, like a triangular-based pyramid would have a triangle as it's base, and a square-based pyramid would have a square as it's base. The pyramids are named for their bases. If your still confused, a trapezoid-based pyramid is a 3D shape.
