Homework Help: Moments Help

  1. Jan 11, 2015 #1

    I'm looking for help with this question, part (a).

    Should be noted that Cx = 10kN and Cy = 17.32kN.

    Problem and solution below.


    I've calculated Ay and Dx succesfully but I'm having problems getting Dy. Do I need to use moments again, and if so, how?
