 Italian term or phrase: Base maggiore Hy. What is the correct term in US english for the base of a trapezoid that is bigger than the other one? Larger base? Wider base? something else? I know it's a question any schoolboy could answer, but I can't seem to find it in the dictionaries I have, nor on wiki.
