#### Worksheet Overview

Look at this parallelogram and its coordinates.

Look at the top right-hand corner of the shape and try to work out its y-coordinate.

It must be 7 because it is level with the top left-hand corner which has 7 as its y-coordinate.

Now look at the x-coordinates of the two left-hand points.  The upper point is two units to the right of the lower point.

This must also be the case on the right-hand side of the parallelogram, so the top point has an x-coordinate of 8 + 2 = 10.

The top right-hand corner has coordinates (10, 7) and it is has been possible to work this out without reading the axes!

Do you feel confident enough to try some questions yourself?
