    Find the centroid of the solid?

    The solid region is of uniform density between the xy-plane and the paraboloid z=4-(x+y)

    =======
    I found the centroid to be (0,0,4/3)
    Could somebody confirm this please?
    Many thanx.

    Yes, that is correct. In future, it would be better to show exactly what you did so that if there is an error we can point it out.
