There is a downward point load of 85 kN at 2 m from the left end and moment of 100 kN-m at 4 from the left end.

Do you know the convention on moment? The 100 kN-m moment will raise the portion of the beam on the left side, will lowering the portion of the beam on the right side, of the moment.

Do you have examples from your text book?

Geometric Approach:

Double Integration

Superposition

Moment-Area

Conjugate Beam

Energetic:

Virtual Work

Castigliano's Theorem

any of them is in your course syllabus?

Usually a regular Mechanics of Material course will cover the three first geometric methods. An advanced course may include also Castigliano's Theorem.

[tex] \frac{d^{2} \nu}{dx^{2}} = \frac{M}{EI} [/tex]

Moment-Area has two theorems, you'll need to work out.

why don't you pick one and start?
