1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data http://i124.photobucket.com/albums/p27/lollipopgourmet/untitled.jpg [Broken] If the couple has a magnitude of M, determine the magnitude F of the couple forces. Since this is an X-Y plane, I assumed the equation would simple just be M=Fd, where I know the moment, and just have to add the the the forces multiplied by their respective distances. 3. The attempt at a solution My attempt was simple set it up like this. M=Fd 250 = F(3/5)(sqrt(17)) - F(4/5)(9) Mostly I just want some certification that this is either right or wrong and if it's wrong to be steered in the right direction with possibly a new answer.
