The equilibrium position is the midpoint between the two extreme ends:

$\overline{){{\mathbf{x}}}_{{\mathbf{0}}}{\mathbf{=}}\frac{{\mathbf{x}}_{\mathbf{m}\mathbf{a}\mathbf{x}}\mathbf{+}{\mathbf{x}}_{\mathbf{m}\mathbf{i}\mathbf{n}}}{\mathbf{2}}}$

According to the plot above, what is the equilibrium position as measured by the motion sensor?

x_{o} = _____ [m]

Answer in meters to the nearest mm OR with N/A if no reasonable answer.
