Help with finding reactions

  1. Mar 9, 2010 #1
    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
    Yes!
    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?
