3-57.

Graph the following points and connect them in the order given. Then find the area and perimeter of the shape. Show all work.

$A(-2,-3)$, $B(-6,5)$, $C(11,5)$, $D(7,2)$, $E(7,-3)$

Try using the Pythagorean Theorem to find the lengths of different sides. Also try breaking up this shape into easier shapes to find the area.

$\text{Perimeter}=44.9\text{ units}$
