Got it .... Thanks
Hence
Now my diagram isn't making sense. Is the lettering A to B to C to D ?
Let CD < AB,
Hi Agnishom;
Sorry, it should have been AC² + BD² = BC² + AD² + 2•AB•CD
Let me check....
Not so different. I blunder around plenty but Agnishom is usually careful.
hi bobbym
That's the difference between us then. I tend to blunder in and post anyway. I guess that's why my posts are full of corrections. That's as far as I've got. Bob

hi bobbym,
Hi Agnishom;
You might have a hard time proving that because I have been playing with trapeziums in geogebra and I can not find a single one where that is true.
hi Agnishom,
So I set up the diagram on Sketchpad and got (for my trapezium)
In a trapezium ABCD, if ABCD then AC² + BD² = BC² + AB² + 2•AB•CD
