I am to find the reactions at A. Am I doing this right? Do I also need to find Ax? If I do, would it just be Ax - 400cos30 = 0?

Yes, but I couldn't find your calculation for determining x =20 feet
Do I also need to find Ax?
Yes!
If I do, would it just be Ax - 400cos30 = 0?
and Yes again!

My bad. I used this following equation to find x.

300(20) = 100x + (400sin30)x

Is that the correct way of finding x?
