    Hello! Thanks!

    Um, so I managed to get the moment about a, but I don't know what to do for b

    hello jining! :smile:

    yes, your moment about A looks fine (you drew that 5° really large … good idea! :biggrin:)

    for the moment about B, do it the same way, extending that 15° line until it gets near B …

    but of course you need to know how far down B is, and the question doesn't tell you :confused:

    oh i see now, i wasn't looking at the diagram properly :redface:

    you can find how far that 150° point is to the right, then use the 10° to find how far down it is from there to B :wink:
