How to Draw a Trapezium using HTML and CSS ?

  • Last Updated : 21 Jun, 2021

A Trapezium is a Quadrilateral which has two parallel and two non-parallel sides. In this article we will create a Trapezium shape using simple HTML and CSS.

HTML Code: In this section, we will create a simple element using the HTML div tag.

HTML




<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="en">
<head>
  <meta charset="UTF-8">
  <meta name="viewport" content=
    "width=device-width, initial-scale=1.0">
  <title>Trapezium</title>
</head>
 
<body>
  <div class="trapezium"></div>  
</body>
</html>

CSS Code: In this section, we will first design the div element using some basic CSS properties and then use the border-bottom, border-left and border-right properties to create the trapezium shape.

css




<style>
  /* creating the trapezium shape*/
  .trapezium {
     height: 0;
     width: 150px;
     border-bottom: 150px solid green;
     border-left: 100px solid transparent;
     border-right: 100px solid transparent;
  }
</style>

Final Code: It is the combination of the above two code sections.

HTML




<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="en">
 
<head>
  <meta charset="UTF-8">
  <meta name="viewport" content=
    "width=device-width, initial-scale=1.0">
  <title>Trapezium</title>
 
  <style>
    
    /* Creating the trapezium shape*/
    .trapezium {
      height: 0;
      width: 150px;
      border-bottom: 150px solid green;
      border-left: 100px solid transparent;
      border-right: 100px solid transparent;
    }
  </style>
</head>
 
<body>
  <div class="trapezium"></div>
</body>
 
</html>
