trapeziod
Posted: Mar 2, 2007 9:04 AM

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.

Tony
