Answer is Area = 4.5 units Perimeter = 6 + square root of 2.

I don't know how to graph this. What does y=x mean?

  • Geometry -

    draw a horizontal line at y=2
    draw a vertical line at x=5
    draw a sloping line from the origin, where every point y=x. For example, 5,5 is on this line, as is 3,3
