Worksheet Overview

QUESTION 1 of 10

In this worksheet, plot points on a set of x and y-coordinate axes, and join them with lines to form simple shapes.

One corner will be missing, so complete the square, rectangle or parallelogram to find the missing coordinates.

 

Example

The coordinates of three points of a parallelogram are:

(0, 0) , (2, 0) and (1, -3)

What are the coordinates of the missing corner?

 

Answer

Parallelogram

The missing corner is at (-1, -3).

On a piece of paper, draw a set of x and y-coordinate axes like these.

Use the same set of axes for the the first 5 questions.
