Worksheet Overview

QUESTION 1 of 10

 Look at this parallelogram and it's coordinates.

 

Parallelogram and coordinates

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

It must be 7 because it is level with the top left-hand corner.

 

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.

 

Parallelogram and coordinates without axes

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

  • Question 1

What are the coordinates of the top right-hand corner of this rectangle?

 

Rectangle and coordinates

CORRECT ANSWER
(8, 8)
EDDIE SAYS
Because the shape is a rectangle, the bottom right x-coordinate is 8, so the top right x-coordinate must also be 8. The top left y-coordinate is 8, so the top right y-coordinate must also be 8. Answer (8, 8)
  • Question 2

What is the x-coordinate of the top right-hand corner of this square?

 

Square and coordinates without axes

CORRECT ANSWER
8
EDDIE SAYS
Because the shape is a square, the bottom right x-coordinate is 8, so the top right x-coordinate must also be 8.
  • Question 3

What is the y-coordinate of the top right-hand corner of this square?

 

Square and coordinates without axes

CORRECT ANSWER
6
EDDIE SAYS
Because the shape is a square, the top left y-coordinate is 6, so the top right y-coordinate must also be 6.
  • Question 4

What are the coordinates of the top right-hand corner of this square?

 

Square and coordinates without axes

CORRECT ANSWER
(8, 6)
EDDIE SAYS
Because the shape is a square, the bottom right x-coordinate is 8, so the top right x-coordinate must also be 8. The top left y-coordinate is 6, so the top right y-coordinate must also be 6. Answer (8, 6)
  • Question 5

What is the x-coordinate of the top right-hand corner of this rectangle?

 

Rectangle and coordinates without axes

CORRECT ANSWER
8
EDDIE SAYS
Because the shape is a rectangle, the bottom right x-coordinate is 8, so the top right x-coordinate must also be 8.
  • Question 6

What is the y-coordinate of the top right-hand corner of this rectangle?

 

Rectangle and coordinates without axes

CORRECT ANSWER
7
EDDIE SAYS
Because the shape is a rectangle, the top left y-coordinate is 7, so the top right y-coordinate must also be 7.
  • Question 7

What are the coordinates of the top right-hand corner of this rectangle?

 

Rectangle and coordinates without axes

CORRECT ANSWER
(8, 7)
EDDIE SAYS
Because the shape is a rectangle, the bottom right x-coordinate is 8, so the top right x-coordinate must also be 8. The top left y-coordinate is 7, so the top right y-coordinate must also be 7. Answer (8, 7)
  • Question 8

What is the x-coordinate of the top right-hand corner of this parallelogram?

 

Parallelogram and coordinates without axes

CORRECT ANSWER
8
EDDIE SAYS
Because the shape is a parallelogram, the bottom right x-coordinate is 7, so the top right x-coordinate must be 7 + 1 = 8.
  • Question 9

What is the y-coordinate of the top right-hand corner of this parallelogram?

 

Parallelogram and coordinates without axes

CORRECT ANSWER
7
EDDIE SAYS
Because the shape is a parallelogram, the top left y-coordinate is 7, so the top right y-coordinate must also be 7.
  • Question 10

What are the coordinates of the top right-hand corner of this parallelogram?

 

Parallelogram and coordinates without axes

CORRECT ANSWER
(8, 7)
EDDIE SAYS
Because the shape is a parallelogram, the bottom right x-coordinate is 7, so the top right x-coordinate must be 7 + 1 = 8. The top left y-coordinate is 7, so the top right y-coordinate must also be 7. Answer (8, 7)
