Graphing, slope, right triangle....

Use the following ordered pairs: (-5,5), (-5,-8), (8,5)
1. Calculate each side of the triangle that is formed by these points
2. Calculate the slope of each side of the triangle
3. Do the points form a right triangle? Verify your findings using two methods (one related to side length and one related to the slope of the lines)
4. Is the triangle formed symmetric in any way? If so, how? (Over an axis/origin)?
5. Is this triangle isosceles?
