2. Show that the given points are the vertices of a right triangle:
A( -1, -2), B ( 5,4), C ( -3,0).

Solution:

4. Prove that the points (-2,3),(5,3), (-1,11) and (-8,-8) are vertices of a
rectangle.

Solution: As can be seen on the Cartesian plane, the points
(-2,3),(5,3), (-1,11) and (-8,-8) do not form a rectangle
5. Show that the triangle with vertices at A (1,1), B(9,-7),C(0,-8) is
isosceles triangle.
