The formula for finding the area of a triangle in the coordinate plane is A = 1/2 * base * height, where the base is the length of the triangle's base and the height is the perpendicular distance from the base to the opposite vertex.
To find the coordinates of the vertices of a triangle in the coordinate plane, you can use the distance formula or the Pythagorean theorem. You can also use the midpoint formula to find the coordinates of the midpoint of each side, and then use those points to find the coordinates of the vertices.
A right triangle has one angle that measures 90 degrees, while an oblique triangle has no angles that measure 90 degrees. This means that the sides of a right triangle are perpendicular to each other, while the sides of an oblique triangle are not.
Yes, you can find the area of a triangle in the coordinate plane if you know the coordinates of two vertices. You can use the distance formula to find the length of the third side, and then use the formula A = 1/2 * base * height to find the area.
Yes, the coordinates of the vertices of a triangle in the coordinate plane should be listed in a specific order. This order is known as the "counterclockwise order" and it starts at any vertex and goes around the triangle in a counterclockwise direction. This order is important because it determines the orientation of the triangle and affects the calculation of the area.
