  1. These are awesome! I assume that the point are evenly spaced on each side of the triangle? How was B placed?

    • Thanks! I thought this might keep a few kids busy for a while. Yes, the are evenly spaced, and B in the third is the same B but the triangle was stretched a bit. Semi-perimeter formula not recommended!!!!
