Reaching back many years in memory...
moment due to a force vector is the force magnitude (12.3 kN) times the perpendicular distance between the force vector & the point in question. Or resolve the vector into x & y components, the moments is the sum of each component times its respective x & y distance from point.

Welcome to the PF, jmohle. On schoolwork questions, the PF rules require you to post your own attempt at a solution before we can offer tutorial help. So please write out the equations that Carl is alluding to, and see how far you can get.
