Center of gravity

The mass points are distributed in space as follows - specify by coordinates and weight. Find the center of gravity of the mass points system:

A1 [14; -2; 5] m1 = 10.2 kg
A2 [-2; -16; 7] m2 = 13.6 kg
A3 [14; 6; 20] m3 = 16.5 kg
A4 [2; 20; 19] m4 = 15.8 kg
A5 [9; -5; 16] m5 = 1.6 kg
A6 [-3; 6; -4] m6 = 3.6 kg
A7 [-20; 12; 19] m7 = 12.5 kg
A8 [-5; -11; -16] m8 = 5.2 kg


x =  1.339
y =  3.587
z =  11.923
