School-Bus Geometry

Answers

two points on a square grid Challenge Questions:
  1. This equation doesn't give us our circle in our new geometry. What is the equation for this School-Bus Geometry circle?

    |x| + |y| = 4 or y = + (4 - |x|)

  2. If the graph of x2 + y2 = r2 is not a circle in this geometry, what would its graph look like?

    There would only be four points on the graph. Those on the axes.
