We got given the formula for finding the centroid of a triangle which was to [itex] (\frac{x_1 + x_2 + x_3}{3}, \frac{y_1 + y_2 + y_3}{3}) [/itex] but we the teacher said he didn't have time to show the proof, however I'm still curious. Could anyone possible hint on how I could go about to prove this? My maths experience is of A level Maths & Further maths, or high school senior (AP Calc I think).(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
