The centroid coordinates are the average of the coordinates of the vertices; then use the distance formula.

#### Explanation:

The coordinates of the centroid are the average of the x and y coordinates of the vertices (corners).

Vertices:

x coordinate of centroid:

y coordinate of the centroid:

Centroid is located at

To find the distance from the origin
