consists of three particles connected by massless rods. It is to be rotated about an axis perpendicular to its plane through point P. If M = 0.40 kg, a = 35 cm, and b = 55 cm, how much work is required to take the body from rest to an angular speed of 5.0 rad/s?

*My work so far*

I believe I need to use:

W = (1/2)(I)(ang speed)^2

I am not sure how to find I though. Would I use I = I1 + I2 + I3 and calculate I for each of the 3 masses?
