Am I correct in thinking that a 'trapezoid' is known as a 'trapezium' in British English?

It's too bad the writers of Big Bang Theory don't use Duolingo. Sheldon and Stephen Hawking could have had a hilarious argument over the correct definition of trapezoid.

I thought מרובע meant square. Does Hebrew not have different words for square and quadrilateral?

Yes, ריבוע is a square and מרובע is a quadrilateral or a quadrangle by Duolingo.

Why is that thing in a circus called a trapeze act? All the lines are parallel. Shouldn't it be called a rectangle act?
