In Exercises 11 to 16, supply the missing coordinates for the vertices, using as few variables as possible. R S T V is a rectangle.

To determine

To find:

The missing coordinates for the vertices.

Explanation

The given figure is shown below.

From the figure, the following observations are made.

Since, the vertex R is at the origin.

The coordinates of R0, 0.

Now, consider the vertex S.

Here, x-coordinate is given as s.

In the S vertex, observe where it lies on y-axis.

Since, it is at 0, the vertex S has the coordinates s, 0.

Consider the vertex V.

Here, y-coordinate is t.

x-coordinate is 0.

The vertex V has coordinates 0, t.

The distance from R to S is s
