    Hey guyss
    Im really stuck on this question

    In a triangle ABC the points D, E, F trisect the sides so that BC = 3 BD, CA = 3 CE,
    and AB = 3 AF. Show that triangles ABC and DEF have the same centroid.

    Ok so i found the centroid of ABC which is (a-b/3,c/3)
    I did this buy plotting the triangle onto a x and y axis and having the coordinates


    now i have to prove that the triangle DEF inside of triangle ABC has the same centroid but im having trouble getting the coordinates of triangle DEF
