BJP5 Exercise 8.20: containsRectangle

Author: Marty Stepp (on 2019/09/19)

Add the following accessor methods to your Rectangle class from the previous exercises:

public boolean contains(int x, int y)
public boolean contains(Point p)

Returns whether the given Point or coordinates lie inside the bounds of this Rectangle. The edges are included; for example, a rectangle with [x=2,y=5,width=8,height=10] will return true for any point from (2, 5) through (10, 15) inclusive.

(You don't need to write the class header or declare the fields; assume that this is already done for you. Just write your methods' complete code in the box provided.) See previous exercises for a description of the Rectangle and Point classes and their public members.
