use distance formula if you can 2 sides that have the same length then you have shown it is isosceles

find the distance between (0,2) and (-3,-1) find the distance between (-3,-1) and (-4,3) find the distance between (0,2) and (-4,3) see if you have 2 of the 3 distances are the same

yah, sqrt17 on two of the sides proves that it is an isosceles, thanks for the help too btw!
