  1. Hint: If the diagonals are equal, then it must be an isosceles trapezoid.
    Construct altitudes from the ends of the side of 9 units
    You should be able to see right-angled triangles with hypotenuse of 17
    (you should get a length of 21 for the other base and 10 for the length of the other two sides.)
