### What is Meant by Centroid?

An important thing related to the triangle is a centroid. The centroid is the centre point of any object. The centroid of a triangle is defined as a point where the three medians of the triangle intersect. The median of a triangle is a line that joins the midpoint of the side and the opposite vertex of a triangle. In short, the centroid is the point of intersection of all three medians of a triangle. The formula to calculate the centroid of a triangle ABC is:

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

Where

(x1, y1) – Coordinates of A

(x2, y2) – Coordinates of B

(x3, y3) – Coordinates of C
