Hi NYCkid09,

If the perimeter of the square is 40, each side is 10. The area is square units.

After sketching a graph, it is easy to locate vertices at (-3, -6), (7, -6), and (7, 4).

The area in QI is 7 X 4 = 28 which is 28%

The area in QII is 3 X 4 = 12 which is 12%

The area in QIII is 3 X 6 = 18 which is 18%

The area in QIV is 6 X 7 = 42 which is 42%

Translating 1 unit to the right changes the QIII area to 2 X 6 = 12 which changes to 12%
