What are (a) the x coordinate and (b) the y coordinate of the center of mass for the uniform plate shown in Fig. if L = 5.0 cm?

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

So I think I should set this up as four different rectangles with a center particle mass. So this leads to Total = 110cm, xcom = ((20(10))+(30(-5))+(20(5))+(40(5))/110

Is this correct?
