# You draw a rectangle with vertices at (-3.5, 3), (3.5, 3), (3.5 3), and (-3.5, -3) What is the perimeter and area of the rectangle?

You have a repeated point in the question so I have made a guess.

Perimeter $= 26 \text{ units}$

Area $= 56 {\text{ units}}^{2}$

#### Explanation:

Height is $3 - \left(- 3\right) = 6$
Width is $3.5 - \left(- 3.5\right) = 7$

Perimeter is: $\left(2 \times 7\right) + \left(2 \times 6\right) = 26 \text{ units}$
Area is:.................................. $7 \times 6 = 56 {\text{ units}}^{2}$
