x2 = -6

y1 = 3

y2 = 4

Length of first side :

a = x1 - x2

a = 2 - ( - 6 )

a = 2 + 6 = 8

Length of second side :

b = | ( y1 - y2 ) |

b = | 3 - 4 |

b = | - 1 |

b = 1

P = 2 ( a + b )

P = 2 ( 8 + 1 )

P = 2 * 9 = 18

Remark :

| |

mean absolute value

Don't I have to find the magnitude then use square root of the answer and multiply by 2? If so, could you show it.
