4. We will refer to the arrangement as a “table.” We locate the coordinate origin at the left end of the tabletop (as shown in Fig. 9-37). With +xrightward and +yupward, then the center of mass of the right leg is at (x,y) = (+L, –L/2), the center of mass of the left leg is at (x,y) = (0, –L/2), and the center of mass of the tabletop is at (x,y) = (L/2, 0).(a) The xcoordinate of the (whole table) center of mass is
