    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    Determine the forces of reaction.


    2. Relevant equations

    SUM of Y forces=0
    SUM OF FORCES ABOUT POINT B = 0

    3. The attempt at a solution
    My attempt is in the link, I scanned the diagram along with my work.
    Thanks for the feedback, appreciated.

    hello,

    When calculating moments, why did you take length of 22,5 ft for force 1350?

    The total load from the triangularly distributed load is not 1350 lbs. Recalculate that load, and please note that the resultant load of a triangularly distributed load acts at the centroid of that triangle (which is not at its center).
