Locate the centroid

  1. Mar 8, 2007 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    2. Relevant equations


    3. The attempt at a solution

    by observation:




    [tex]\bar{Y} = 153.1mm[/tex]

    The book says the answer is 154mm, I know that its not off by far but am I doing something wrong, or is the book rounding off somewhere? I am slightly off on every single question I attempt!
