To find the centroid of a triangle with vertices at coordinates (x1, y1), (x2, y2), and (x3, y3), you can use the formula:

Centroid = ((x1 + x2 + x3) / 3, (y1 + y2 + y3) / 3)

Substitute the coordinates of the vertices into the formula:

Centroid = ((6 + 2 + 1) / 3, (7 + 6 + 5) / 3)

Centroid = ((9) / 3, (18) / 3)

Centroid = (3, 6)

The distance between the centroid and the origin (0, 0) can be calculated using the distance formula:

Distance = √((x2 - x1)^2 + (y2 - y1)^2)

Substitute the coordinates of the centroid and the origin into the formula:

Distance = √((3 - 0)^2 + (6 - 0)^2)

Distance = √(9 + 36)

Distance = √45

Distance ≈ 6.71

So, the distance between the centroid of the triangle and the origin is approximately 6.71 units.

When evaluating a one-sided limit, you need to be careful when a quantity is approaching zero since its sign is different depending on which way it is approaching zero from. Let us look at some examples.
