Question

# A rectangle whose length and breadth are 5 and 3 units respectively, has a vertex at the origin. The longer side lies on the x-axis and one of the vertices lies in the first quadrant. What are the coordinates of the vertices?

A

(0,0); (0,5); (5,3); (3,5)

B

(0,0); (5,0); (5,3); (0,3)

C

(0,0); (0,5); (5,3); (3,0)

D

(0,0); (0,3); (5,3); (3,5)

Solution

## The correct option is A (0,0); (5,0); (5,3); (0,3) The coordinates of point A is (0, 0), the longer side lies on the x-axis, therefore, moving 5 units right of the origin, the coordinate of point B is (5, 0). The breadth of the rectangle is 3 units, so moving towards the y axis from origin by 3 units, the coordinates of D will be (0,3). Joining all the points, the coordinates of C is (5,3). Mathematics
