Geometry

Begin with a large isosceles trapezoid, and locate the midpoint of each side. • Use these midpoints as the vertices of a new quadrilateral to be formed inside the first quadrilateral. • Locate the midpoint of each side of the second quadrilateral, and use these midpoints as vertices to form a third quadrilateral. • Repeat this process with each new quadrilateral until the newest quadrilateral is too small to be seen.
