Just as in section 1.3 you had to learn to accept that procedures are just as good as numbers, now you have to accept that points (or any other abstract type) are just as good as numbers! 2.3 Since the hint suggests using exercise 2.2, let's represent a rectangle as two adjacent sides (adjacent so that we get one length and one width). (define (make-rectangle side1 side2) (cons side1 side2)) (define (first-leg rect) (car rect)) (define (second-leg rect) (cdr rect)) Perimeter and area: (define (perimeter rect) (* 2 (+ (length-segment (first-leg rect)) (length-segment (second-leg rect))))) (define (area rect) (* (length-segment (first-leg rect)) (length-segment (second-leg rect)))) (define (length-segment seg) (sqrt (+ (square (- (x-point (end-segment seg)) (x-point (start-segment seg))))...
