    (1,-2,3 ) x , y , z x axis of Cm = m1x1 + m2x2 + m3x3 / (m1+m2+m3) y axis of Cm = m1y1 + m2y2 + m3y3 / (m1+m2+m3) etc...

    ok.. so let xcm be the centre of mass of the three particle system then \[Mxcm = m1x1+ m2x2 + m3x3 \] now .. when the fourth particle is added.. the centre of mass shifts hence \[M'xcm' = m1x1+ m2x2 + m3x3+ m4x4\] or \[M'xcm' = Mxcm + m4x4\] the only thing you have to find now is x4.. so calculate.. do the same in other 2 axes
