36. Sample answer: X is at the origin, so place Y ( a , b ) in the first quadrant. XYZ is scalene, so place Z on the x -axis so that the x -coordinate c is such that XZ YZ XY . So, the coordinates of Z are ( c , 0). 37.

AC CB and AC CB , so ABC is a right isosceles triangle. 38. Sample answer: Placing the figures on the coordinate plane is useful in proofs. We can use coordinate geometry to prove theorems and verify properties. Answers should include the following. • flow proof, two-column proofs, paragraph proofs, informal proofs, and coordinate proofs • Sample answer: The Isosceles Triangle Theorem can be proved using coordinate proof. 39.
