    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data


    What is the direction of the moment?

    A) along +x
    B) along −x
    C) along +y
    D) along −y
    E) into the page
    F) Out of the page

    2. Relevant equations


    3. The attempt at a solution

    I said out of the page because when I use the right hand rule, my thumb points outwards but what do you guys say?
