You are holding a shopping basket at the grocery store with two 0.51 kg cartons of cereal at the left end of the basket. The basket is 0.73 m long. Where should you place a (1.8 kg) half gallon of milk, relative to the left end of the basket, so that the center of mass of your groceries is at the center of the basket?

I keep getting .638 m from the left end but that is incorrect.
