Trapezoid means different things in different countries.

I am assuming that you mean a 4 sided figure where 2 of the sides are parallel. (I would call this a trapezium)

I am wondering if you are referring to what I would call an isoscles trapezium where the 2 non parallel sides are equal in length?

Sorry for the confusion, I am working with the definition that a trapezoid is a quadrilateral in which exactly one pair of opposite sides are parallel.
