## Directions:

For each triangle, you are given two of the three vertices. Your goal is to plot the third vertex of the triangle and use coordinate geometry to defend your coordinates.
Use the polygon tool to shade in the triangle.

## MathBits Notebook - Types of Triangles

## Triangle 1: Scalene Triangle

Given: segment AB with A(3, 1) & B(1, 4)
Plot point C such that ABC is a

**scalene**triangle.Prove ABC is a **scalene** triangle.

## Triangle 2: Right Triangle

Given: segment DE with D(3, 1) & E(1, 4)
Plot point D such that DEF is a

**right**triangle.Prove DEF is a **right** triangle.

## Triangle 3: Isosceles Triangle

Given: segment GH with G(3, 1) & H(1, 4)
Plot point I such that GHI is an

**isosceles**triangle.Prove GHI is an **isosceles** triangle.

## Triangle 4: Equilateral Triangle

Given: segment JK with J(3, 1) & K(1, 4)
Construct point L such that JKL is an

**equilateral**triangle.Prove JKL is an **equilateral** triangle.
