a trapezium needs to have two sides parallel to each other and the other two sides unparallel to each other, if you want you could draw diagnals through the trapezium and prove that the alternate angles are equal that is prove that angle EBD= BDC

or anything similar to prove that it has two parallel sides

I knew i should have not erased what i originally wrote, well anyway i provided the link so that he doesnt get confused, well such a shape has a proper name a parallelogram which is a part of the family of quadrilaterals, and in this case all that is necessary is to prove that it has one pair of parallel sides to show that it is a trapezium
