Write the coordinates of the vertices of a rectangle whose length and breadth are 5 and 3 units respectively, one vertex at the origin, the longer side lies on the x-axis and one of the vertices lies in the third quadrant.

Answers (1)

Answer: 
Coordinates of A (-5, 0)
Coordinates of B (-5, -3)
Coordinates of C (0, -3)
Coordinates of O (0, 0)

Solution.

Given rectangle has one vertex at the origin. Let the vertex be O.
∴ The coordinates of O are O (0, 0). 
Let the rectangle be OABC.
Length = 5 units
Breadth = 3 units.
Now as the longer side is on the x-axis, we get that length lies on x-axis and breadth lies on the y axis.
So,
The coordinates of A are A (-5, 0)
The coordinates of C will be (0, -3).
Given that one of the vertex is in the third quadrant. 
So, the rectangle lies in the III quadrant.
The coordinates of B will be (-5, -3).
