    Configuration centered at the origin

    I have two configurations (set of points, each with its x and y coordinate) that should be compared.
    In order to do this, I should perform the operation so that both configurations are centered at the origin.
    I understand that the operations are to be performed on x and y axis, but I'm not sure how to do this.
    Any suggestions are welcome.

    Hmm... with the distance between two points, no?

    The configurations should have centroids at the origin. I've found this, but I'm not sure what it means:
    "Subtract the mean vectors for the configurations from each
    of the respective points in order to have the centroids at the
    origin"
