Check if a point lies inside a rectangle | Set-2

  • Last Updated : 09 Nov, 2021

Given coordinates of bottom-left and top-right corners of a rectangle. Check if a point (x, y) lies inside this rectangle or not.

Examples: 

Attention reader! All those who say programming isn't for kids, just haven't met the right mentors yet. Join the  Demo Class for First Step to Coding Coursespecifically designed for students of class 8 to 12. 

The students will get to learn more about the world of programming in these free classes which will definitely help them in making a wise career choice in the future.

Input: bottom-left: (0, 0), top-right: (10, 8), point: (1, 5) 
Output: Yes



Input: bottom-left: (-1, 4), top-right:(2, 3), point:(0, 4) 
Output: No

This problem is already discussed in a previous post. In this post we have discussed a new approach.

Approach: The above problem can be solved by observation. A point lies inside or not the rectangle if and only if it’s x-coordinate lies between the x-coordinate of the given bottom-right and top-left coordinates of the rectangle and y-coordinate lies between the y-coordinate of the given bottom-right and top-left coordinates.

Below is the implementation of the above approach:  

C++




// CPP program to Check if a
// point lies on or inside a rectangle | Set-2
#include <bits/stdc++.h>
using namespace std;
 
// function to find if given point
// lies inside a given rectangle or not.
bool FindPoint(int x1, int y1, int x2,
               int y2, int x, int y)
{
    if (x > x1 and x < x2 and y > y1 and y < y2)
        return true;
 
    return false;
}
 
// Driver code
int main()
{
    // bottom-left and top-right
    // corners of rectangle
    int x1 = 0, y1 = 0, x2 = 10, y2 = 8;
 
    // given point
    int x = 1, y = 5;
 
    // function call
    if (FindPoint(x1, y1, x2, y2, x, y))
        cout << "Yes";
    else
        cout << "No";
 
    return 0;
}

Java




// Java program to Check if
// a point lies on or inside
// a rectangle | Set-2
class GFG
{
 
// function to find if given point
// lies inside a given rectangle or not.
static boolean FindPoint(int x1, int y1, int x2,
                         int y2, int x, int y)
{
if (x > x1 && x < x2 &&
    y > y1 && y < y2)
    return true;
 
return false;
}
 
// Driver code
public static void main(String[] args)
{
     
    // bottom-left and top-right
    // corners of rectangle
    int x1 = 0, y1 = 0,
        x2 = 10, y2 = 8;
 
    // given point
    int x = 1, y = 5;
 
    // function call
    if (FindPoint(x1, y1, x2, y2, x, y))
        System.out.println("Yes");
    else
        System.out.println("No");
}
}
