# Let ABC be an equilateral triangle in which coordinates of B and C are (5,0) and (-5,0) respectively . Find the coordinates of the oint A.

By symmetry,the x coordinate is obviously 0.
Let the y coordinate be y
Thus,coordinate of A =(0,y)
Now,distance BC =10
Therefore,AB =AC=BC =10  (equilateral triangle)

That,is A can be both in +y and -y axis.
Coordinate of A = $\left(0,±5\sqrt{3}\right)$
