# How do you make an isosceles trapezoid with 6 tangram pieces? Verified answer

Place the two large triangles next to each other so that their hypotenuses together make the long parallel side of the trapezoid.

Place the medium triangle between the two large triangles with its hypotenuse along the edge of one of the large triangles.

Place one of the small triangles between the medium triangle and the other large triangle with its hypotenuse along the edge of the medium triangle

Place the square between the large triangle and the small triangle so that its edges are along side the small triangle and the large triangle.

Finally place the parallelogram between the square and the medium triangle (toughing both) to finish the isosceles trapezoid.

The seventh piece,. the final small triangle, which is not used, can be placed on top of the parallelogram (with its hypotenuse touching) to create a large triangle,.

An Isosceles trapezoid can also be formed from all 7 pieces - take the large square formed by all the pieces except the two large triangles (as above if the large triangle is completed), and put the two large triangles on opposite sides to complete the isosceles trapezoid. Study guides
