Figure ABCDE has vertices A(−2, 3), B(2, 3), C(5, −2), D(0, −4), and E(−2, −2). Plot the points on your own coordinate grid and connect the points in alphabetical order. Decompose Figure ABCDE into rectangles and triangles. Part A: How many triangles and rectangles did you make? Part B: Use Figure ABCDE created on your coordinate grid to find the lengths, in units, of Sides AB and AE. Part C: What is the area of Figure ABCDE? Show your work.
what did you do so far?
nothing i tried but im confused on the questions.
Each of those points, ordered pairs; is a location on the coordinate plane... (x,y) A(-2,3) means the x coordinate is -2 and the y coordinate is 3. That is a unique location in the plane...
move 2 units left along the x axis, then 3 units straight up
