* How many different figures can be described as $(4, 0)$?

* What do you notice about $(4,0)$ figures?

* Choose another particular value for $(p,i)$ and explore different shapes.

* Have you tried drawing shapes with the same area?

* What do you notice about those figures whose areas are the same?

* What ways are there of increasing the area by $1$ unit?

* Draw more figures; tabulate the information about their perimeter points ($p$), interior points ($i$) and their areas ($A$).
