X_{cm}=\frac{(ab) \times \frac{a}{2}-(\frac{3a}{4})\times \frac{ab}{4}}{(ab)-\frac{ab}{4}}=\frac{a[\frac{1}{2}-\frac{3}{16}]}{1-\frac{1}{4}}=\frac{a[\frac{5}{16}]}{\frac{3}{4}}=\frac{5a}{12}

Y_{cm}=\frac{(ab) \times \frac{b}{2}-(\frac{3b}{4})\times \frac{ab}{4}}{(ab)-\frac{ab}{4}}=\frac{b[\frac{1}{2}-\frac{3}{16}]}{1-\frac{1}{4}}=\frac{b[\frac{5}{16}]}{\frac{3}{4}}=\frac{5b}{12}


Option 1)

\left ( \frac{3a}{4}, \frac{3b}{4} \right )

Option 2)

\left ( \frac{5a}{3}, \frac{5b}{3} \right )

Option 3)

\left ( \frac{2a}{3}, \frac{2b}{3} \right )

Option 4)

\left ( \frac{5a}{12}, \frac{5b}{12} \right )
