The problem is attached to this post, basically i need the exterior reactions and how to work them out.
i know i need to take moments im just not sure how to work it out.
Basically what i worked out
is
i assumed horizontal members are equally to 1
sum of the horizontal = 0 5Kn HA  HE=0
Sum of the vertical =0 10KN VA =0
But that is where im stuck i know the numbers should be roughly
HA=20
VA= 10
HE = 15
But i know it is more accurate than that im not sure if i need to include sine or cosine in the solution
Thanx in advance
