Finding Centroid

  1. Feb 28, 2013 #1
    1. Find the centroid of the region determined by the graphs of the inequalities.

    y ≤ (1/3)x^(2) ; (x-3)^2 + y^(2) ≤ 9 ; y ≥ 0

    x(bar) , y(bar) = (?, ?)

    I did the problem, but i do not know the answer because the problem is an even number and the book only have answers for the odd problem. I would like to know the answer to this problem. I do not need to know how to do it. I just need to know the answer so I can check my work.

    2. What I did was find moment using the equations. then i use the formulas for planar mass.
