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.

Its A. 1.33

actually -_-
this is what i have

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...

ahhhh I miss read so the answer is D .33 meters from the end of the board... I apologize
