    Step 1: Use the midpoint formula to find point C. Step 2: Use the slope formula (y2-y1/x2-x1) to find the slope of the ordered pairs. Since the lines are perpendicular, take that slope and find the opposite reciprocal. So if it's 4 then the slope of the perp. line would be -1/4. Step 3: Plug your point C and the perp. slope from Step 2 into the slope-intercept formula ( y=mx+b) and then find b. The b is the y-intercept of the perpendicular bisector. Repeat all these steps until you have all the y-intercepts of the perpendicular bisectors. Then order the points by their corresponding y-intercepts. I realize you posted this 10 months ago. But in case another person needs to find the answer, I've posted the solution. Cheers!
