Well of course you are going to need more than one point to determine an Isosceles triangle. Using three points then you can determine if you have to sides which are of equal length and then know if it is Isosceles.

Now if this is not what you are asking, perhaps you can clarify your question a bit further as well as provide any code you are working on to solve the problem.

If one does not have three points, then it is not a triangle, let alone an isosceles triangle. Once one has that info, it's a matter of using the Pythagorean theorem to figure it out.

Little type mistake. It's supposed to be to check if a pont is IN a Isocles right triangle, sry for that.
