(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

An W = 7500 N automobile is stalled one-quarter of the way across a bridge (see Fig. P77). Compute the additional reaction forces at supports A and B due to the presence of the car. Take the length of the bridge to be AB.

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

I was told that if you pick one side of the bridge as your rotation point, then either A or B is already a length of 0. But I'm not sure how to proceed from here, any help would be greatly appreciated!
