1. well, it sounds like a trapezoid with a triangle.

Except that you seem to be saying that the top and bottom bases of the trapezoid are both 17 cm. That makes it a rectangle.
Also, is the base of the triangle one of the sides of the trapezoid?

Why not say something like
You have trapezoid ABCD and triangle BCE
and name the various sides and their lengths.

And after all that, just what is it you want to know about the shape? It's a trapezoid with a triangle...
