7-32.

Graph and connect the points $G(-2,2)$, $H(3,2)$, $I(6,6)$, and $J(1,6)$ to form $GHIJ$.

1. What specific type of shape is quadrilateral $GHIJ$? Justify your conclusion.

Use the Pythagorean Theorem and the triangles shown to determine the lengths of $GJ$ and HI.

What type of quadrilateral (other than a square) has sides all of the same length?

2. Find the equations of the diagonals $\overline{GI}$ and $\overline{HJ}$.

Use slope triangles to find the equations for the diagonals.

3. Compare the slopes of the diagonals. How do the diagonals of a rhombus appear to be related?

If one line has a slope that is the opposite of the reciprocal of the slope of another line, the two lines are perpendicular.

4. Find $J'$ if quadrilateral $GHIJ$ is rotated $90°$ clockwise ($\circlearrowright$) about the origin.

5. Find the area of quadrilateral $GHIJ$.

$\text{Area of a parallelogram}=(b)(h)$

Move the points in the eTool to their given coordinates. The shape will appear when all the points are in their proper places.
