Determine and locate the resultant R of the two forces and one couple acting on the I beam.
I understand this is kind of hard to understand this is the best I could do "====" = 3 ft
first | = 6kN force upwards
O= couple 52kN m ccw
second | = 10kN downards
The Attempt at a Solution
I chose to move all the forces to b where the couple was so that I wouldn't have to wry about the force caused by said couple when finding the resultant. The resultant would then be 4kN down at 6m. However the book says the answer is 4kN down at 5m I am really confused can somebody please help me if you need more help to understand the question please ask.
