Accepted Solution

A:

Answer: Bottom-Right corner

The points are (-5,6) (-5,-6) (4,-6)

-----------------------------------------

Explanation:

What you do is go through each of the answer choices, plot the points, and see which give you a right triangle. A right triangle has one 90 degree angle.

The upper-left choice leads to an obtuse triangle, so we can cross that off the list. It turns out that the other choices lead to right triangles.

The upper-right choice has a hypotenuse of roughly 11.18, so that's also eliminated

The bottom-left choice has a hypotenuse of 10.82, which means we cross that off the list

The bottom-right choice has a hypotenuse of 15, so we found the answer

Note: you use the distance formula to find the length of the hypotenuse. The distance formula is

d = sqrt((x1-x2)^2+(y1-y2)^2)
