Alright, this is a bit of a confusing one for me.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

The problem:

The ultimate objective is to get the coordinates of the points on the edge of the rectangle (labeled:(?,?)), given the angle, and the height and width of the rectangle.

The more I think about this problem, however, the more I confuse myself. Before I was going to outline some steps I thought I needed to take to get that point (and ask for the equations) but now I'm not sure what I need to do anymore.

I want to highlight that I know the height and width of the rectangle, and the angle.

I know I can find the distance between the center dot by dividing the height or width by two, depending on what axis, since its the point in the center of the rectangle.

Any help at all?
