 Homework Statement:
 This is a weekly assignment problem.
 Relevant Equations:

Fnetx = 0
Fnety = 0
Sum of Moments at a point = 0
So for this problem I have already solved for the Y forces: Dy = 171.43 N, Cy = 228.57 N, and By = 428.57 N. For the X forces I split up the frame and took the moment of DE.
Me = 1.5(300) + 3.5(300)  5(Dx), Dx = 300
For CD Dx = Cx fo I got Cx = 300, as when you forces are two member Dx = 300 on member CD. Then I used the moment of ABC to solve for Bx
Ma = 2.5(Bx) + (5)300, Bx = 600 N.
I am almost postive my Y forces are correct, but I am unsure of the Xforces and I can balance the moments, but not the sum of the forces. Am I correct or am I missing something?
