## Homework Statement

Hey all. Below is the question and picture related to it.

"Three uniform metre sticks each of mass M are attached together as follows: Stick 1 lies along the y-axis from y = 0 to y = 1.0m. Stick 2 lies along the x-axis from x = 0 to x = 1.0m. Stick 3 makes an angle of 60 degrees with the y axis. Find the x and Y coordinates of the centre of mass of the system of three metre sticks, and marks its approximate location on the diagram of the three sticks."

## The Attempt at a Solution

I am really confused with this one.

Maybe let's start with the X

The formula I know is: Xcm = m1x1 + m2x2 + m3x3 / m1+m2+m3

But how do I input into this formula... ??
