To find the centroid of the triangle with vertices at (5, 2), (9, 6), and (8, 5), you would first calculate the average of the x-coordinates and the average of the y-coordinates of the vertices. Then, these averages represent the coordinates of the centroid. Finally, you would find the distance from the centroid to the origin using the distance formula.

Let's denote the coordinates of the centroid as (Cx, Cy), then:

Cx = (5 + 9 + 8) / 3 = 22 / 3 ≈ 7.33 Cy = (2 + 6 + 5) / 3 = 13 / 3 ≈ 4.33

The coordinates of the centroid are approximately (7.33, 4.33).

Now, to find the distance from the centroid to the origin:

Distance = √((Cx - 0)^2 + (Cy - 0)^2) = √((7.33 - 0)^2 + (4.33 - 0)^2) = √(7.33^2 + 4.33^2) ≈ √(53.8289 + 18.7489) ≈ √72.5778 ≈ 8.51 (approximately)

So, the distance from the triangle's centroid to the origin is approximately 8.51 units.
