No its parallel bases can never be equal in length.

But if it is in the form of an isosceles trapezoid then its slanted sides are equal in length.

How do you prove that a trapezoid is isosceles?

You prove that the two sides (not the bases) are equal in length. Or that the base angles are equal measure.

An isosceles trapezoid is trapezoid with congruent bases?

Can a trapezoid have 3 bases?

No, a trapezoid cannot have 3 bases. A trapezoid is a quadrilateral with exactly one pair of parallel sides. The parallel sides are called bases of the trapezoid. Therefore, there can only be 2 bases.

Can a trapezoid and parallelogram have the same area?

Yes, certainly. The trapezoid area is one half sum of bases times height and the parallelogram area is base times height If the base of the parallelogram is equal to 1/2 the sum of he trapezoid bases, they have the same area
