Growing Rectangles

Look at this series of growing rectangles on the right.

  1. Calculate the areas of rectangles B, C, D, and E.

  2. Find the coordinates of the points b, c, d, and e .

  3. What is the distance between points (2,212) and (13,212)?

  4. What is the distance from each of the points b, c, d, and e to the x-axis?

  5. If you continue the series and draw rectangles F and G, what are the coordinates of corresponding points f and g?

  6. What are the areas of rectangles F and G?
