Video Transcript: Geometry Applications: Quadrilaterals, Segment 3: Parallelograms and Trapezoids

This is the transcript for the video of same title. Video contents: The Puerta de Europa towers in Madrid bring parallelograms front and center. These tilted towers, looking like modern-day towers of Pisa seem to defy gravity, but rely on the stability brought about by its quadrilateral structure. The underlying parallelogram and trapezoidal designs are explored and analyzed.
