Example: area of a rectangle on a coordinate plane

There is a given rectangle with the coordinates of two of its opposite angles. Calculate the area and its perimeter:


In this task, we have to consider that if we substract the smaller x from the bigger x, we will receive the length of the rectangle. Analogically, if we substract the smaller y from the bigger y , we will receive the height of the rectangle. What is left is to multiply both sides. Here is an example of an implementation of the described logic:

var x1 = double.Parse(Console.ReadLine());
var y1 = double.Parse(Console.ReadLine());
var x2 = double.Parse(Console.ReadLine());
var y2 = double.Parse(Console.ReadLine());

// Calculating the sides of the rectangle:
var width = Math.Max(x1, x2) - Math.Min(x1, x2);
var height = Math.Max(y1, y2) - Math.Min(y1, y2);

Console.WriteLine("Area = " + width * height);
Console.WriteLine("Perimeter = " + 2 * (width + height));

We use Math.Max(a, b), to find the bigger value a and b and analogically Math.Min(a, b) to find the smaller of both values.

When the program is executed with the values from the coordinate system given in the condition, we receive the following result:
