# Example of shapes on a coordinate plane

Plotting points on a coordinate plane can help us draw shapes like rectangles! The points (1,1), (1,6), (9,6), and (9,1) form a rectangle. The x-coordinate tells us how far right to move, and the y-coordinate tells us how far up to go. The rectangle's height is the difference between the y-coordinates, which is 5.

• Can a shape have more than 4 vertices and only 4 sides?

• A shape should have the same number of sides as vertex points. So, I don't think so. Imagine that you had to come up with the answer to it. Think of the shapes you know, and see if there are any more vertices than sides.
• i got confused at minute 1;01

• At minute , Sal just described where the points were located at. That's not so important but can help to few.
• I agree with Sushay,math may seem boring,but it can actually be useful,it helps you how to use money properly.

Imagine you are a tourist in a bazaar,
you only have 70 dollars in your wallet,then you see a curio shop called 'Acra Dacra's Magic Shop' where it sells strange magical items,the shopkeeper,Acra Dacra,shows you what he has for sale:

Magic Carpet 10\$

Genie Lamp 20\$

A Magical Ring that can turn you invisible every time you wear it but turns you into a creepy guy walking on fours eating raw fish for enternity 19\$

Ruby Slippers 35\$

Monkey Paw 45\$

A Ballpoint Pen that can turn into a sword named Riptide 55\$

If you buy one of his items,how much money will you have left?
