There is an isosceles triangle with a base of 12 units. Find the locus of points that are 6 units from the midpoint on the line.
I had that problem on my test and I'm getting paranoid about my answer. Thanks for any help!

Hello, ilikewhoa!
What is the original wording of the problem?
There is an isosceles triangle with a base of 12 units.
Find the locus of points that are 6 units from the midpoint on the line.
. . What line?
If it refers to the midpoint of the base, why mention the triangle at all?
We have a line segment 12 units long.
The locus of points 6 units from its midpoint is a circle:
. . center at the midpoint, radius 6 units.
