    Hi andyboy179,
    Go back to the book to find out how to calculate distance between two points.

    Ok, would I do \sqrt{(8- 2)^2+ (9- 1)^2} and \sqrt{(6- 2)^2+ (1-1)^2}
    =70 and 4
    Add them to =74

    Hi andyboy179,
    I don't know what you are thinking with the second function but the first is OK.Recalculate its sqrt.

    So if it is 10 the Area would be 4x10=40 and perimeter 4+4+10+10=28???
