### Example Question #1 : How To Find A Rectangle On A Coordinate Plane

Rectangle has coordinate points: , , , . Find the area of rectangle .

**Possible Answers:**

square units

square units

square units

square units

**Correct answer:**

square units

The area of rectangle can be found by multiplying the width and length of the rectangle.

To find the length of the rectangle compare the x values of two of the coordinates:

Since the length is .

To find the width of the rectangle we need to look at the y coordinates of two of the points.

Since the width is .

The solution is:
