Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0no it is 4 units by 5 units. in order for it to be a square it would need to be 4 units by 4 units or 5 units by 5 units etc.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yes, that's correct. when you count down from Point B to Point A, there's 5 units of space. but when you count right from C to B, there are 4 units. In order for any figure to be a square, all sides must be congruent @lulubj you're correct :)
