A triangle has corners at #(4 ,4 )#, #(8 ,6 )#, and #(7 ,1 )#. How far is the triangle's centroid from the origin?
centroid of a triangle with given points
[ (x1+x2+x3)/3 , (y1+y2+y3)/3]
where x1,x2,x3,y1,y2,y3 are the coordinates of the vertices o the triangle.
substituting will get u the centroid as (19/3,11/3)
now the distance from the origin (0,0) will be
substitute to get the answer as 8.945(approx)
