Since given is the equilateral triangle whose all the vertices are at equidistance. Let the coordinates of the third vertex be (x, y) Hence distance of (x, y) from (0, 0) = distance of (x, y) from (2, 2) therefore by distance formula we have \[(x0)^2+(y0)^2 = [x(2)]^2+(y2)^2\] \[\rightarrow x^2+y^2 = [x+2]^2+(y2)^2\] \[\rightarrow x^2+y^2 = x^2 +4 + 4x + y^2+4 4y\] \[\rightarrow 0 =8 + 4x  4y\] \[\rightarrow 4y 4x =8 \rightarrow y x =2 \] now cosider x=0 we get y0= 2 i.e. y=2 hence (x, y) = (0, 2) could be the coordinates of the third vertex.

now cosider y=0 we get 0x= 2 i.e. x=2 i.e. x=2 hence (x, y) = (2, 0) could also be the coordinates of the third vertex

I fact there may be indefinite answers depending on the values we are assuming and second value obtaining accordingly...
