Geometry Question - Complex numbers & triangles

  1. OK, I've got this question to do:

    Find complex numbers representing the vertices of a triangle ABC given
    that the midpoints of the sides BC, CA, AB are represented by complex numbers
    z_1, z_2, z_3 respectively.

    Thing is, I don't know where I'm taking the origin to be; if I took it at A then I would just have A is O, B is 2*z_3, C is 2*z_2. Surely there's more to the question than that?

  3. yeah, oops, just realised it's about similar triangle and it doesn't matter where the origin is...
