Name the Figure

Look at this figure.

  • Name the figure and the location of its vertices on the coordinate plane.
  • Without providing coordinates of all four vertices, write a description that describes this figure. Someone who has not seen this figure should be able to duplicate it from your description.

Ask yourself:

  • Look at the sides and the angles of the figure. What figure has these characteristics?
  • Are the sides parallel or perpendicular to either the x - ory -axis?
  • What are the coordinates of one vertex?
  • How long is the figure’s height?
  • How long is the figure’s width?
