1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Determine the resultant force R that is equvalent to the forces exerted by the tugboats on the barge. Specify the coordinates of the point on the x axis through which R passes. Pls check attached file! 2. Relevant equations Moment=Force x perpendicular distance 3. The attempt at a solution Findin the R resulted to 15.7i + 11j Total moment about A gives 8tons.m clockwise. Then using this force-couple system, the resultant force should be placed such that it yields the same moment. Letting x be the distance between Ry(y component so I get a perpendicular relationship) and pt. A, and equating the moment(that of R and the 8tons.m) reveals that x=0.7m. Then the coord is 60m-.7m=59.3m.
