the base of an isoceles triangle lies on the x-axis. The coordinates of the midpoints of the equal sides pf the triangle are (2,3) and (-2,3). What are the coordinates of the vertices of the triangles? Please help.

    The three vertices for this question is (4,0), (-4,0), (0,6). In order to get this you need to first start by using the distance formula and substitute the midpoints. The answer you will get is(4,0). Because it is equal the other will be (-4,0). And just take one of the points and by using the midpoint formula calculate the third point which is (0,6).
