Lesson 15
Shapes on the Coordinate Plane
Problem 1
The coordinates of a rectangle are \((3, 0)\), \((3, \text5)\), \((\text4, 0)\) and \((\text4, \text5)\)
 What is the length and width of this rectangle?
 What is the perimeter of the rectangle?
 What is the area of the rectangle?

Problem 3
 Plot and connect the following points to form a polygon.
\((\text3, 2), (2, 2), (2, \text4), (\text1, \text4), (\text1, \text2), (\text3, \text2), (\text3, 2)\)

Find the perimeter of the polygon.

Problem 4
For each situation, select all the equations that represent it. Choose one equation and solve it.

Jada’s cat weighs 3.45 kg. Andre’s cat weighs 1.2 kg more than Jada’s cat. How much does Andre’s cat weigh?
\(x = 3.45 + 1.2\)
\(x = 3.45  1.2\)
\(x +1.2 = 3.45\)
\(x1.2=3.45\)

Apples cost $1.60 per pound at the farmer’s market. They cost 1.5 times as much at the grocery store. How much do the apples cost per pound at the grocery store?
\(y = (1.5) \boldcdot (1.60)\)
\(y = 1.60 \div 1.5\)
\((1.5)y = 1.60\)
\(\frac{y}{1.5} = 1.60\)
