In the diagram below, how far from the end of the board can a 60 kg person walk before it will tip over? The mass of the board is 100 kg, and a 2-meter section of its 6-meter length hangs over the edge. Assume that the entire mass of the board acts at the center of the board.

    A. 1.33 meters
    B. 1 meter
    C. 2 meters
    D. 0.33 meters
    E. 0.5 meters

    but the answer is 1.66 hmmm :/
    It must be considering that the 2m over the edge have a downward force that wishes to tip the board even though it says that the mass is in the center...
