Desgining basic beam

2. Relevant equations

M = E*I(d^2*w/dx^2)

slope = E*I (dw/dy) = integral of E*I(d^2*w/dx) + c1

deflection = E*I * (w) = double integral of E*I(d^2*w/dx) + c1x + c2

ΣM*= 0

ΣFx = 0

ΣFy = 0

Yb = ΣAY / ΣA

I = Σ(I* + Ad^2)i

bending stress = MC / I

3. The attempt at a solution

I dont understand the question. If someone can clear it up for me that would be nice. If someone can tell me what the question asks for, and how I would attack this problem by telling me the first few steps.
