a drawing really does here:
so i draw the horizontal line y=2 and the vertical line x=-2 at this intersection i put b (this is where my right angle is going to be). so point b is at (-2,2). point a is 5 units long and is also on y=2 so this point has to be (3,2) or (-7,2) -doesn't matter i will go with (3,2).
now we know c is at (-2,y) we don't know the y yet bet we know that c is on x=-2.
we have the area of the triangle is .5bh=12.5
we know the base length is 5 (ab)
we have the height is (2-y) if you look at your
solve for y to get the y-coordinate for c
divide both sides by 2.5 giving:
now subtract 2 on both sides
answer: the center is the median and/or mean of the data. the spread is the range of the data. and, the shape describes the type of graph. the four ways to describe shape are whether it is symmetric, how many peaks it has, if it is skewed to the left or right, and whether it is uniform. good luck
