# Trapezoid ( distance between the midpoints of the diagonals)

## Description

Trapezoid is a convex quadrilateral with only one pair of parallel sides. The parallel sides are called the bases of the trapezoid and the other two sides are called the legs or the lateral sides. The distance between the midpoints of the diagonals can be calculated by the length of the legs of the trapezoid. (The midpoints of two opposite sides and the intersection of the diagonals are collinear)
