If a problem asks for the force of torque that will stop something from rotating that will be equal(?) to the amount of torque implied in the problem?

The problem is probably asking for the torque of a force required to stop the object from rotating. Think about Newton's laws. What must be the sum of all torques in order for there to be no rotation?
