## Homework Statement

pivot point located at the middle of ramp( Point C).

F1=250 lbs @ 12 in from point A

F2=250 lbs @ 84 in from point A

L=192 in

angle from the ground is 25 degrees

## Homework Equations

sum of moments equal to 0

sum of forces equal to to 0

## The Attempt at a Solution

I did sum of moments about point c equal to 0 , solve for Ra

0=(F1*84)+ (F2*12) - (Ra*96)

Ra= 250 lbs in

Same thing for Rc

0=-(F1*12)-(F2*84)+(Rc*96)

Rc=-250 lbs in

My question is does the angle make a big difference?
