    does it have to be exactly 3 congruent sides?

    theres a few ways it could be a trapezoid

    It's an isosceles trapezoid.

    an isosceles trapezoid would be correct, yes. that's the only one i've been able to get

    In this case, it's a parallelogram, and more specifically a rhombus, but now all sides are congruent, not just 3. |dw:1435636107123:dw|

    If three congruent sides means exactly three congruent sides (not at least three congruent sides), then it must be an isosceles trapezoid.
