Here's computer "graph paper." Now try plotting the points. |dw:1358753411282:dw|

so then what's the answer? @mathstudent55
Notice that two opposite sides have a rise and run of 4 and 2. The other two opposite sides have a rise and run of -7 and 3. Therefore both pairs of opposite sides are congruent. It's at least a parallelogram. Is it also a rectangle? Are slopes 2/4 and -7/3 negative reciprocals? Simplify them and multiply them together. If their product is -1, they are and it's a rectangle, if not, it's not a rectangle. 2/4 = 1/2 1/2 * (-7)/3 = -7/6 which is not -1, so it's not a rectangle, but it is a parallelogram.
