Lesson goal: Looking for rectangles
Previous: Looking for right triangles
| Next: Guess your own trendline
Continuing to work with the set of $(x,y)$ points from this lesson
, and in the spirit of this lesson
let's look for a rectangle amongst the points.
A rectangle needs four points and four lines, with pairs of connecting lines being perpendicular.
Take a look at the goal below.
Now you try. Run the goal and see if Prolog finds a rectangle in the points.
Type your code here:
Oh no! The goal fails! (Prolog returns a
false.) Is there no rectangle amongst our points? (See the hint.)
