# Math Help - the coordinate of Centroid of a Triangle

1. ## the coordinate of Centroid of a Triangle

How do u find the coordinates of Centroid of a Triangle ? For example, the coordinates are E(-3,5), F(0,-1), and G(6,5).

I have a test tomorrow and all help is greatly appreciated IF you don't want to do the math, just explain the steps please

Find the x coordinate for the centroid by taking the average of the x coordinates of the vertices. Find the y coordinate for the centroid by taking the average of the y coordinates of the vertices.
