because by distance formula

√(3-0)² + (4-0)²

gives

√25 which is 5units

since all the sides are equal there for its perimeter is 4 ×5 = 20 units

AREA=length of one diagonal × length of other diagonal × 1/2

therefore,

by distance formula

√(8-0)² + (4-0)²=√64 +16 =√80units =length of one diagonal

√(5-3)² + (0-4)²= √4 + 16 =√20 units = lenght of the second diagonal

area = √80 × √20 × 1/2

= 4√5 × 2√5 ×1/2

= 20 unit²

pleazzzzzzzzzzzzzz mark it best
