My problem (trying to help an ay last keen son)-a lever 5m long, a weight of 300kg, a force of 100kg.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

The question says describe?

I am trying to work out the distance from the end of lever to fulcrum

or in other words where the fulcrum should lie.
