ab: Summary: Isosceles trapezoids are dissected into three similar triangles
and rearranged to form two additional isosceles trapezoids. Moreover,
triangle centers, one from each similar triangle, form the vertices of
a centric triangle which has special properties. For example, the
centroidal triangles are congruent to each other and have an area
one-ninth of the area of the trapezoids; whereas, the circumcentric
triangles are not congruent, but still have equal areas.
