# Growing Rectangles

Look at this series of growing rectangles on the right.

Calculate the areas of rectangles

*B*,*C*,*D*, and*E*.Find the coordinates of the points

*b*,*c*,*d*, and*e*.What is the distance between points $\left(-2,-2\frac{1}{2}\right)$ and $\left(13,-2\frac{1}{2}\right)$?

What is the distance from each of the points

*b*,*c*,*d*, and*e*to the*x*-axis?If you continue the series and draw rectangles

*F*and*G*, what are the coordinates of corresponding points*f*and*g*?What are the areas of rectangles

*F*and*G*?
