**Reiny**, Friday, February 3, 2012 at 11:03amplace the long side on the x-axis so that it runs from

(0,0) to (8,0)

then the altitude cuts the base in half and hits it at (4,0)

looks like we have 2 right-angled triangles with base of 4 and hypotenuse of 5,

by Pythagoras that height has to be 3

(s^2 + 4^2 = 5^2)

so the third vertex must be (4,3)
