    The visual representation is in the attachment.


    This is as far as I get in this problem,


    W= (8KN/m) 6m= 48Kn

    R= Summation FY=

    Summation MA=

    X bar=

    Help please, I need to know how to do these problems, it isn't a Homework its just an exercise for my brain. If I can see the process of how it is done, then I can understand it and put it to use, If I see a process it sticks in my mind forever.
