Re: Is this random coordinate inside of the triangle?
Well, we don't provide code here (except to illustrate general concepts). To solve your problem you first need to figure out how you would do it on paper. You clearly know the height and the width of the triangle. So all you need to worry about is whether it is below the hypotenuse and above the base. So x should be easy. Once you have x, then think about the equation of a straight line to determine y. Once you figure it out on paper, it should be trivial to translate into Java.
Note: The approach above assumes at least one of the two shorter sides is parallel to the xaxis.

You're welcome. And once you try and code it in Java, we can certainly help you with any syntactic or even logic problems you may encounter.
