Isosceles trapezoids always have congruent diagonals.
Work Step by Step
We draw the trapezoid at the origin, giving the equal sides a length of a. We then draw the diagonals. This creates two triangles, which share a common side, which is congruent to itself by identity. Additionally, since the two sides have length a, they are congruent. Finally, they have congruent angles, they are congruent by SAS. Thus, since CPCTC, the diagonals are congruent.
