I am drawing a geometric pattern in inkscape. I have faced a problem. In the white rectangle shown below, I need to make it into a trapezium. I drew two triangles at two sides of the rectangle with three lines. I tried to fill in the shape. But it is not possible to fill and also to cut these two triangles. Can anyone please help me with this? Thanks.

Select the rectangle, and one of the triangles. Holding down Shift as you click to select will allow you to make more than one selection.

Click Path > Difference, and then repeat for the other side.
