Please help! :(
The coordinates of the midpoints of the sides of a triangle are A(0, 1), B(4, 0), and C(2, –2). Find the coordinates of the vertices of the triangle. Hint: You should plot out this problem using graph paper!
A. (–2, 1); (2, 3); (6, –2)
B. (–2, –1); (–2, 3); (5, –3)
C. (–2, –2); (0, 3); (0, –1)
D. (–2, –1); (2, 3); (6, –3)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1look, for example if you'll examine letter A , the y coordinate of one of its midpoint should be 2... there's no positive 2 y coordinate in the given midpoints

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1the midpoint formula is (x + xsub1) / 2 and (y + ysub1)/2 right?
