Help with Statics?

  1. Nov 19, 2014 #1
    I'm sort of self-teaching statics. Failing to see why when they sum moments around A, the force Fbc is coming in at an angle (and hence being multiplied by the 5/13). Can someone please clarify?

    Welcome to PF;
    The question asks to calculate the moments etc "at a section passing through point E".
