I need help with this. Can anyone assist me?
Quadrilateral FGHI is shown on the coordinate plane with coordinates F at 4, −2; G at 7, −2; H at 5, −4; and I 2, −4. Point A is at −2, 7 and point D is at −10, −1.
In order to build a scale model of the trail, the drawing is enlarged as parallelogram ABCD on the coordinate plane. If two corners of the trail are at point A (−2, 7) and point D (−10, −1), what is another point that could represent point B?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0And the distance formula is \[\sqrt{(x2  x1)^2 + (y2  y1)^2)}\]
