Find the centroid of the triangle whosw vertices is  (1,4), (-1,1) and (3,2) . - Mathematics

Find the centroid of the triangle whosw vertices is  (1,4), (-1,1) and (3,2) .

Solution

We know that the coordinates of the centroid of a triangle whose vertices are

(x_1,y_1),(x_2,y_2) (x_3,y_3)are

((x_1+x_2+x_3)/3,(y_1+y_2+y_3)/3)

so, the coordinates of the centroid of a triangle whose vertices are

(1,4),(-1,-1) and (3,-2) are ((1-1+3)/3,(4-1-2)/3)

=(1,1/3)

Is there an error in this question or solution?
