Two quadrilaterals ABCD and EFGH are drawn on a coordinate grid. The coordinates of the vertices of each quadrilateral are given below. ABCD : A(-8, 0), B(-3, 12), C(9, 7), D(3, -5) EFGH : E(-7, 7), F(-2, 19), G(10, 14), H(4, 2) Which statement about the two quadrilaterals is true? ABCD has half the area of EFGH. ABCD is twice as large as EFGH. ABCD is congruent to EFGH. ABCD is neither congruent nor similar to EFGH.
don't you have any pic of it??
drawing them would make the problem easier
@amistre64 @Meepi @precal
as cwrw stated, doing a rough sketch would help you see it better
or we could move them both to the origin ABCD : A(-8, 0), B(-3, 12), C(9, 7), D(3, -5) +8 +8 +8 +8 --------------------------------------- 0,0 5,12 17,7 11,-5 EFGH : E(-7, 7), F(-2, 19), G(10, 14), H(4, 2) +7-7 +7-7 +7-7 +7-7 --------------------------------------- 0,0 5,12 17,7 11,-5
now that they are both placed at the origin, what can you tell?
@amistre64 That helps a lot, I think I've got it from here. Thanks!
