I looked this up:

The properties of the trapezoid are as follows:

The bases are parallel by definition.

Each lower base angle is supplementary to the upper base angle on the same side.

SO angle a + angle d = 180

angle a = 2d    substitute

2d +d = 180       d= 60

a= 2d = 120 degrees                                    This assumes your trapezoid is labeled    A            B

D                      C
