The 3 points are ( 2200 , 1500 ) ; ( 200 , 800 ) ; ( 1500 , 300 ) and the respective sales are 1500, 800 and 450.
According to centroid method,
X-coordinate  =  Sum(X-coordinate of each point  Sale) Total sales
= ( 2200 1500 + 200 800 + 1500 450 ) ( 1500 + 800 + 450 )
= 1503.64
Y-coordinate  = ( 1500 1500 + 800 800 + 300 450 ) ( 1500 + 800 + 450 )
= 1100
So the location for the new facility should be ( 1503.64 , 1100 )
