Janet's Centroid

Here are pictures of the centroids that I made with Muting. The centroid balanced on the centroid and the median. Centroid is considered the center of gravity because it will balance and it will not fall. We had to line up the midpoint and the vertix to see if it will balance on the length of the pencil. We had to balance the pencil on the longer median, and not the shorter one. When we had to balance the median on the length of the pencil, we had to use proportion because it was hard to balance it.
