    [HELP]problem in Second Condition of Equilibrium

    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data:

    The axles of a 2400 lb car are 7 ft apart. if the centr of gravity of the car is 3 ft behind the axle, how much weight is supported by each of the car's wheels? II

    2. Relevant equations

    i'm not sure. i scanned my notes, then i found this equation

    3. The attempt at a solution

    i don't also have any idea about this. but my classmates told me that the answers are 686lb and 514lb

    i can't solve for this because i don't know what the appropriate legends for them. whether Torque 1? or whatsoever. :|
