    Let A(x1,y1), B(x2,y2) and C(x3,y3) be the vertices of the triangle ABC.

    Consider AB

    By midpoint formula, (x1+x2)/2 = 0

    x1+x2 = 0

    x1 = -x2 ..(i)

    By midpoint formula, (y1+y2)/2 = ½

    y1+y2 = 1 …(ii)

    Consider AC

    By midpoint formula, (x1+x3)/2 = ½

    x1+x3 = 1 …(iii)

    By midpoint formula, (y1+y3)/2 = 0

    y1+y3 = 0

    y1 = -y3 …(iv)

    Consider BC

    By midpoint formula, (x2+x3)/2 = ½

    x2+x3 = 1 …(v)

    By midpoint formula, (y2+y3)/2 = ½

    y2+y3 = 1 …(vi)

    Substitute (i) in (iii)

    Then (iii) becomes -x2+x3 = 1

    Equation (v) x2+x3 = 1

    Adding above two equations, we get

    2x= 2

    x= 2/2 = 1

    Substitute x3 = 1 in (iii), we get x1 = 0

    x2 = 0 [From (i)]

    So x1 = 0, x2 = 0, x3 = 1

     

    Substitute (iv) in (ii)

    Then (ii) becomes -y3+y2 = 1

    Equation (vi) y2+y3 = 1

    Adding above two equations, we get

    2y2 = 2

    y2 = 2/2 = 1

    Substitute y2 = 1 in (i), we get y1 = 0

    y3 = 0

    So y1 = 0, y2 = 1, y3 = 0

    Hence the Co-ordinates of vertices are A(0,0), B(0,1) and C(1,0).
