1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data 2. Relevant equations 3. The attempt at a solution Excuse me for the large images. I figured it would be easier than re-writing it all and wanted to show what I've been doing. I know my work isn't too clear, but in short, I haven't dealt with a problem involving two torque points like this yet and am not sure how to deal with it. I attempted to analyze each pillar separately to find how much force the opposite pillar would have to apply to keep the scaffold stationary (no angular acceleration). My result was 1269N for one and 446N for the other, but the answers in the back are 1117N for one and 9.8N for the other, so clearly I'm doing something seriously wrong. If someone can just point me in the right direction as to what I need to do in order to analyze a torque problem like this involving two torque points, I would greatly appreciate it.
