### QUESTION 1 of 10

Look at this parallelogram and it's 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.

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

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

• Question 1

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

(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?

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?

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?

(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?

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?

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?

(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?

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?

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?

(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)
