Group Title
The figure below shows a partially completed construction of an obtuse isosceles triangle. Points P and L represent two vertices of the triangle.

Where should the point for the third vertex lie?
between O and L and on the arc
between O and L and beyond the arc
between O and M and beyond the arc
between O and M and on the arc

Am sorry I got away  yeah so  Obtuse means an angle greater than 90 degrees  now moving point away from O, towards M would *increase* <LPO, rendering it obtuse. So  any thoughts now?

Yeah it should be between O and M and beyond the arc right?

Okay now  I want it to remain isosceles. so if the third vertex is exactly on the arc, then the two sides would be equal, since they are the radii of the same arc! So  which option finally?

Actually two things have to be defined  one where the point has to be in respect to L and O, and where with respect to the arc (beyond, on or before the arc). Read your options!

so its not between O and M and beyond the arc? @apoorvk

Its definitely between O and M  but where  on the arc or beyond it?

i think its beyond the arc. @apoorvk

Beyond the arc would render the two sides unequal  so the triangle won't be isosceles!
