Define a class named Rectangle with characteristics:


  • Data


  • double field x and y that specifies the center of the rectangle.
  • integer field width and height of the rectangle.

    • Methods
    • The default constructor creates the default rectangle centered at (0,0) and width and height as 1.
    • Another parameterized constructor has 4 parameters representing x, y, height and width values.
    • getArea() - Returns area of rectangle.
    • getPerimeter() - Returns perimeter of rectangle.
    • contains(double x, double y) - returns true if the specified point (x,y) is inside the current rectangle.










    • First two lines represent value x and y respectively which is a center of the custom rectangle.
    • Third and fourth lines represent height and width of the custom rectangle respectively.
    • Fifth and sixth lines represent x and y coordinates of a point to be which is to be checked.










    • First three lines represent perimeter, area, and result of whether the point (0.5, 0.1) is inside the default rectangle. (this value will not change with change in test case)
    • Fourth and fifth lines represent perimeter and area, respectively, of the custom rectangle from user input.
    • Sixth line represents whether given point is inside the rectangle.
