Metric geometry

In the taxi-cab plane show that ifA=(-5/2,2),B=(1/2,2), C=(2,2), P=(0,0), Q=(2,1) and R=(3,3/2)then A-B-C and P-Q-R. Show that line segment AB~to line segment PQ,line segment BC~line segmentQR, line segment AC~line segment PR. Sketch an appropriate picture.

Solution Summary

This shows how to sketch an appropriate picture for a given metric geometry situation.
