Lesson 3: Area and perimeter on the coordinate plane

# Drawing a quadrilateral on the coordinate plane example

We're making a four-sided shape called a quadrilateral using line segments! We use four points on a graph: (0,9), (0,-7), (8,-7), and (8,0). We connect these points to form our quadrilateral. Isn't shape-making fun? Created by Sal Khan.

• How do you draw a quadrilateral on the coordinate plane?
• You draw the quadrilateral on the coordinate plane by plotting the points given. If it says "3 units to the left of (3, 4) it is (0, 4). Simply use the coordinate plane and grid to help you. Hope that I helped!
• at I thought I was going blind.
Am I the only one who thought that?
• can i get 10 upvotes
• Umm...well this video doesn't really help understand "Drawing polygons with coordinates"....I'm still pretty confused.....
• One vertice is one of the points of a shape, whether that be a square, rhombus, etc. So if you place a vertice of one of the lines at one point and the other vertice of the line at another point (on a quadrilateral), you have formed one of four lines. And you overlap these until you make your shape!
• does anyone acutlly like doing math
• not rally
• One of the exercicies asked me to do an hexagon. But I can only make 3 dots. Help !
• Meaning? I might be able to help. Does it ask for three dots or another way. You might be understaning it wrond. Check again and them tell us what is says. Or press Ctrl and PrtSc and paste the image here. You can also send the link here. Or never mind about the link.

• How do you know which goes where?
• What does he mean when he sage savage vertex
• I know how to spot the answer but i'am confused how to make the shapes in your videos you should add more details like the video was only 1 minute can you do that and make another better video please?
