Center of Mass of a 3D Pyramid

I need three different algebraic solutions of the center of mass of a square-based pyramid. Finding the center of mass of a square-based 3D pyramid is usually done in calculus, but our professor wants us to work it out in algebra. One hint he gave us (for one way of approaching this problem) is to split the pyramid into small bl
