Being as specific as possible, decribe the type of polygon shown in each figure. (a) (b)

To determine

(a)

To describe:

The type of polygon shown in the given figure.

Explanation

The given figure is shown below.

Find the distance RT.

x1,y1=R-a, 0

x2,y2=T0, b

Formula for distance between two points

d=x2-x12+y2-y12

Substituting the x and y co-ordinates

dRT=0--a2+b-02

On solving this,

dRT=a2+b2

To determine

(b)

To describe:

The type of polygon shown in the given figure.
