The base of an equilateral triangle with side 2a lies along the y-axis such that the mid-point of the base is at the origin.Find the vertices of the triangle

Expert Answer:

Dear Student
If the base lies on the y axis and the mid point is (0,0) the the two vertices will also lie on the y axis equidistant from origin. Since length of the side is 2a so the vertices will have coordinates (0,a) and (0,-a) the third vertex will lie on x axis with coodinates (,0)
