In the Shape Factory, you created many shapes by rotating triangles about the midpoint of its sides. (Remember that the midpoint is the point exactly halfway between the endpoints of the line segment.) However, what if you rotate a trapezoid instead?

Carefully draw the trapezoid above on graph paper, along with the given midpoints. Then rotate the trapezoid

Rotating about the midpoint of the base forms a hexagon (one convex and one non-convex).

Rotating the trapezoid about the midpoint of either of the non-base sides forms a parallelogram.

Use the eTool below to rotate the figure and test your answer.
