Here is the question along with my solution below however I have been told this is wrong and an equation for the defelction and displacment is needed and answers for this along with a bending moment to support.

It seems there are some errors in resolving Mx-x:
The lenght 5 of the distributed load is not shown (although included in calculation).
The products of 111.75x and -50x are missing.
The correct equation may be:
##M_{x-x}=1032.5-215x##

I am really struggling to understand this to be honest is ymax my total deflection if so what would be max displacement

This is my attempt however I need to know a value/equation for displacement and deflection.
