Day 2: Computer Setup

You and your team have been hired as subcontractors by a company producing a new video game. Your team is responsible for producing a security base plate for the new game. The product will be manufactured at the Technology Center of DuPage (TCD), and you will be able to correspond with them via e-mail.

Suggested Approach to Problem:

First -> Read complete description of the project

Second -> Print a copy of the blueprint and calculate all the missing dimensions and coordinates(a-j)

Third -> Transfer the figure to the Cartesian coordinate system

In order to help you to better understand the Cartesian coordinate system, please download and try this Microsoft Excel program created by Ed Malczewski from the MSTE office.
