Lesson: Rectangles on the Coordinate Plane Mathematics • 6th Grade
In this lesson, we will learn how to use the distance, slope, and midpoint formulas to determine the coordinates, area, and perimeter of a rectangle in the coordinate plane.
A rectangle has vertices at the points , , , and with coordinates , , , and respectively.
Work out the perimeter of the rectangle . Give your solution to two decimal places.
Work out the area of the rectangle .
Rectangle is graphed in the coordinate plane with its vertices at , and . Find its perimeter.
