My son has a math problem: If a trapezoid has 2 right angles, what are the other 2 (ex accute and obtuse).

Leslie...It appears to me that the question was just looking for the total of the other two angles so you were correct just with the 180.

I'm voting 1.5 times for John's answer b/c1. it is elegant and uses few words and2. b/c he costs the least, but David, like an engineer, drew us apicture that helps explain the basic trapezoidal properties.My answer, when in hS, would have been:"They are any two complementary angles that add up to 180, except 90 and 90."
