Thank you so much for including this skill. I keep forgetting the English terms for geometric terms and this is really helping. I just learned a new English word...
I couldn't disagree with you more. This section is really giving me a headache and I would prefer to skip it altogether :-D
This one should have an image since English can be confusing sometimes...
The first picture is a טרפז. The second is not.
A trapezoid has to have one pair of parallel sides.
So a vertex is a corner, and trapezoid is American for trapezium. Is that right? I've never even heard of a trapezoid.
Yes, I think you've got that right. The closed four-sided polygon with two parallel sides is definitely called a trapezoid in the U.S., and probably in Canada, too. A vertex is a point where edges meet, or colloquially, a corner.
What are vertices?
The points of a shape. Places where there are corners, or angles.
Vertices (קודקודים) are dots or points (נקודות). Note the common root.
Happy to kniw. I looked up in the Collins English-English dictionary but it only gave it as "whirl" ...
That's a vortex not a vertex
Vertices. A.k.a. vertexes.
It's a very long time since I did Geometry, but I'm sure that in my day we called "vertices" "corners" in Australia! And I'm sure that we called "trapezoids" "trapeziums".
I hear "lehitrapez"... is that correct? Shouldn't it be "letrapez"?
I hear "litrapez".
