Hi,

May someone help me please? I have been at the problem for a long time now.

Isosceles triangle XYZ is placed on a coordinate plane to be used for a coordinate proof. What could be the coordinates of its vertices?

Thank you for the help.

Hello, JayJay!

Are you*sure*you know what an isosceles triangle is?

Isosceles triangle XYZ is placed on a coordinate plane.

What could be the coordinates of its vertices?

Here's one way . . .Code:| *(0,b) *|* * | * * | * * | * * | * * | * * | * - - * - - - + - - - * - - (-a,0) | (a,0)

Here's another . . .Code:| | *(½a,b) | *:* | * : * | * : * | * : * | * : * | * : * |* : * - - * - - - + - - - * - - (0,0) (a,0)
