# The co-ordinates of centroid of a triangle formed by the three points (7, –5), (–2, 5) and (4, 6) is

A. (3, –2)

B. (2, 3)

C. (3, 2)

D. (2, –3)

Answer :

Let the points of triangle be

(x_{1}, y_{1}) = (7, -5) and

(x_{2}, y_{2}) = (-2, 5) and

(x_{3}, y_{3}) = (4, 6)

Centroid of a triangle is given by

G =

Substituting values

⇒ G =

⇒ G = (3, 2)
