**Bobé Phett**, Tuesday, January 15, 2013 at 11:38amUsing the diagram and connecting the dots. The top horizontal line segment is y=b and the segment is the distance of the endpoints which is a-(-a) = 2a, the same goes for the bottom horizontal segment. The bottom is y=-b The vertical segments on the left and right would be x=-a (left side) and x=a on the right. The distance from the endpoints is b-(-b)=2b

So the rectangle formed has the dimensions of 2a X 2b

Since the lines are horizontal and vertical they form 90 degrees angles where they intersect. A characteristic of rectangle.
