On this picture of rectangular trapezoid direct corners are located in tops B and С.

In mathematics there is determination of rectangular trapezoid, which over is brought and in Wikipedia: the rectangular is name a trapezoid at which even one corner of line. This classic determination of rectangular trapezoid, bluntly rewritten from sacred mathematical books. In Euclidean geometry a rectangular trapezoid always has two lines of corner, as two sides trapezoids, called grounds, are parallel. Segment BC, formative a direct corner with founding of АВ, will be always perpendicular to the second founding of CD. With one or three direct corners there can be only a curvilinear rectangular trapezoid, and it is quite another other class of geometrical figures already.
