First let me say that if this is too simple for this site I am sorry. I'm

just a old timer that is trying to maximize my cuts on a sheet of plywood.

Trapezoid Question

I know the base measurement and the angles of the trapezoid.

I need the sides and the top to be equal

Is there a formula that I can input the base length and angles to find the

3 equal sides?

The reverse to this question

I know the equal length of the 2 sides and the top. I know the degrees of

the angles

Is there a formula that will tell what the base needs to be.

Thanks for your help

Tony
