Ok im confused about how to even approach the problem. If someone tells me where the axis are and how i have to look at teh problem im sure I can do it. But i have no clue where and how to look at the problem for the first one (a) I made this diagram http://img65.imageshack.us/img65/8493/28387934gl0.jpg [Broken] so according to taht the x component of that A weight will be not effecting anything since distance will be 0 but y component which is Fy=(5lb)(sin75)=4.8 My = 4.8 x 14 = 67.6 lb in Mx = 0 Mb = 67.6 lb IS THIS RIGHT? im guesing no ... can someone help me !!
