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.
