# Barycenter: answer key to 1st grade math exercises in PDF.

The answer key to the math exercises in 1st grade on the barycenter n weighted points. Use the stability and associativity properties of the barycenter in first grade.

Exercise 1:

It is up to you to make these constructions knowing that the barycenter is necessarily aligned with points A and B.

Exercise 2:

1. Describe the set of points M in the plane such that
Consider I barycenter of points (A,5) and (B,6)

so the set corresponds to the circle of center I and radius 2 .

2. Describe the set of points M in the plane such that
Consider I barycenter of points (A,-5) and (B,8)

so the set corresponds to the circle of center I and radius 4 .

3. Describe the set of points M in the plane such that
Consider I barycenter of points (A,5) and (B,-6) and J barycenter of points (A,7) and (B;-6)

Also:
so we are looking for the points M such that MI=MJ, the set is therefore the bisector of the segment [IJ].

Exercise 3:
Let R be an orthonormal reference frame of the plane .

1. Carry out the construction

2. We note the set of points M of the plane such that .
.

Determine the equation of the set .
The equation of this set is therefore :

2. Show that it is a mediator.

Exercise 4:

Consider the point G, barycenter of (A,1); (B,1) and (C,2)

Consider the point K, barycenter of (B,1) and (C,3)

so it is the same as looking for the set of points in the plane such that :

Conclusion: the set of points M is the bisector of the segment [MK]

Exercise 7:

Let’s use the associativity of the barycenter

Let K be the barycenter of (A,1) (B,1) and L the barycenter of (C,3) (D,3)

The points K and L are isobarycenters so they are the midpoints of segments.

Moreover, these three barycenters exist because the sum of their masses is non-zero.

By associativity of the barycenter, G is the barycenter of (K,2) (L,6)

To construct G, it is sufficient to place the point K in the middle of [AB] and L in the middle of [CD].

and

Then it is enough to place the point K at the quarter of the segment [LK] starting from the point L.

Exercise 8:

Hint: use the associativity of the barycenter.

G exists because

Conclusion: the hook must be placed at of [AB] starting from point A.

These diagrams can be reproduced at any scale.
