# Two bodies of masses m1 and m2 are separated by a distance R.The distance of the centre of mass of the bodies from the mass m1 is A.(m2R)/(m1+m2). B(m1R)/(m1+m2) #C. (m1m2R)/(m1+m2) ?

$A$

#### Explanation:

Let the centre of mass of the system lies at a distance $x$ from ${m}_{1}$,

so,we can say,

$\left({m}_{1} + {m}_{2}\right) x = {m}_{1} \cdot 0 + {m}_{2} R$

or, $x = \frac{{m}_{2} R}{{m}_{1} + {m}_{2}}$
