1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data 2. Relevant equations 3. The attempt at a solution I know how to work shear and moment diagram problems, but I am a little confused as to how to start this one. Does it matter that the force is hanging off the bracket? Can I just continue as if the force was acting directly on the beam, or is there something else I need to do. I know if the force was acting directly on the beam, the support reactions would be P/2 at points A and C.
