Yes but the parallel bases are of different lengths

No, it is not.

No, it is not.

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

No but it has congruent base angles. Also it has: One pair of parallel sides Non-parallel sides that are equal Two pairs of equal angles Diagonals that are equal

No, it is not.

Yes. The midsection is equal to the average of the two bases.

No, it is not.

The altitude of a trapezoid bisects the bases of the trapezoid.

The average of the bases of a trapezoid is the median.

A trapezoid midsegment is parallel to the set of parallel lines in a trapezoid and is equal to the average of the lengths of the 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.

False.

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
