# 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.

• Who Doesn't understand? I can help.
• 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?
• I would have \$50. As seen in Aladdin, their incorrect physics of when they flew on the magic carpet would make the air resistance instantly k!ll you, so I wouldn't buy that. The magical ring has obvious downsides, so I obviously wouldn't buy it, plus I don't react well with fish. I doubt the ruby slippers would be comfortable, assuming that the slippers are made entirely from ruby. I woudn't buy the monkey's paw because I do my research, and The Monkey's Paw (the book) is of the horror genre, and I'm pretty sure something bad would happen if I bought it. Lastly, I don't have use for a sword (or a pen, but only because I already have plenty good pens). If you take all of this information, it would only be logical to take the genie lamp.

• Every time I watch this it says that I have not completed the assignment and wont let me rewatch it
• 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.
