Nope. think of the width of the rectangle as x, and the length as y. |dw:1439022173641:dw|

Counting up from 2 \(rightarrow\) to 7, or even from -4 \(\rightarrow\) to 2, how many steps is that?

|dw:1439023205596:dw| We can use the distance formula to find the distances of x and y. \[x=\sqrt{(2-(-8))^2+(7-2)^2}\]\[y=\sqrt{(2-5)^2+(7-1)^2}\] After finding x and y, just multiply them together. \[A=x\cdot y\]
