Re: geometrical question about congruent rectangles

hi skipjack,
"Perhaps a better approach would be to consider the general case, using three variables to specify the position of the second rectangle in relation to the first. That would be a bit tedious, but shouldn't be unduly difficult."
could you concretize this idea?

Two variables to specify the relative position of the second rectangle, and one more to specify its orientation.
