hi all,

if i have two of the three cartesian coordinates of a right angle triangle, and the length of two of the sides (and of-course the hypotenuse as well, though i would prefer, for reasons of programming efficiency, not to have to calculate this if it can be avoided)what formula would i use to calculate the position of the third vertex?

thanks for any help you can provide
