The centroid of a triangle is located at 2/3 of the length of any median.
Median=(OA+OB)/2=<5,1>
2/3 from vertex (origin)=<10/3,2/3>.
Another way:
It turns out that the coordinates of the centroid of a triangle is the mean of the x and y coordinates of the vertices.
In this case, the coordinates are:
<0,0>
<4,3>
<6,1>
The mean of x=10/3, mean of y=2/3
So G is at <10/3,2/3>.
