## Annetta_Martin 2 years ago 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??

No :(

drawing them would make the problem easier

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?

8. cwrw238

smart idea amistre

@amistre64 That helps a lot, I think I've got it from here. Thanks!
