Homework Help: Distributed load question

  1. Feb 12, 2014 #1
    Referring the question and my own worked out solution in the attachment, I could not get to the answer given that is Ra= 200 N, and Rc = 1300 N. Is there any calculation mistake I made?

    Check your moment calculation for the triangular portion of the distributed load. I think there is an error there.
