nothing

The non-parallel line of an isosceles trapezium are equal.

If the two sides which are not parallel have equal lengths, then the trapezoid is called an isosceles trapezoid (standard trapezoid has unequal sides). The base angles in an isosceles trapezoid are equal in measurement, also I know that a trapezoid with two nonparallel sides the same length is called an isosceles trapezoid.

No, not every trapezoid is an isosceles trapezoid.

One has three sides, the other has two. Both have one pair of congruent sides.

Yes, an isosceles trapezoid is symmetrical.

how is an isoscelels trapezoid related to a isosceles triangle

An Isosceles trapezoid has four sides (is a quadrilateral) with a pair of parallel sides and the other two sides of equal length; whereas An isosceles triangle has three sides with a pair of sides of the same length and the other side a different length.

In an isosceles triangle and an isosceles trapezoid, both base angles are congruent

The diagonals of an isosceles trapezoid are equal in lengths

what is isosceles

No. It can be but need not be.

One has three sides, the other has two. Both have one pair of congruent sides.
