Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0OK, looks like what you need is to calculate the distance between each of the two points. So, for example, we need to find the distance between Q(2,0) and R(4,5).

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I prefer this version, but you can use whatever you are most comfortable with: d = square root( (difference in x's)^2 + (difference in y's)^2 )

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Thank you! I will work it out and then show you my answer, is it okay if I tag you in it? and then if I post the next question can I tag you? I only have 1 more:)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Sure! Remember for this one that you will need the distance for each of the edges all the way around the figure. :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so when I find the distance for each edge then what do I need to do?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Once you find each distance (there should be 5) the perimeter is just the total of them added up.
