Young acrobats are standing still on a circular horizontal platform suspended at the center. The origin of the two-dimensional Cartesian coordinate system is assumed to be at the center of the platform. A 30-kg acrobat is located at (4 m, 9 m), and a 36-kg acrobat is located at (−2 m, −2 m). Assuming that the acrobats stand still in their positions, where must a 20-kg acrobat be located so that the center of mass of the system consisting of the three acrobats is at the origin and the platform is balanced?
