# Solution for If A, B, C, D are four non-collinear points in the plane such that AD+ BD+CD=O then prove that point D is the centroid of the ΔABC. - HSC Science (Electronics) 12th Board Exam - Mathematics and Statistics

ConceptVectors Centroid Formula for Vector

#### Question

If A, B, C, D are four non-collinear points in the plane such that bar(AD)+bar( BD)+bar( CD)=bar O then prove that point D is the centroid of the ΔABC.

#### Solution

Let bar a , bar b , bar c , bar d be the position vectors of points A, B, C, D respectively

bar(AD)+bar(BD)+bar(CD)=barO

(bard-bara)+(bard-barb)+(bard-barc)=barO

3bard-(bara+barb+barc)=barO

3bard=bara+barb+barc

bard=(bara+barb+barc)/3

bard represents centroid of the triangle.

Point D is the centroid of the ΔABC.
