(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); [SOLVED] Reduction of resultant Moment/Force

So I have calculated the resultant force correctly but my solution for distance is incorrect. I keep getting 6.08 ft but the correct solution is 6.57 feet from B.

I found [itex]F_r=798.499[/itex] which is correct. Then I used,

[tex]\sum M_B=\frac{3}{5}(500)(9)+6(1200)+\frac{12}{13}(260)(4)=4860 lb\cdot ft[/tex]

Then [itex]d=\frac{M_r}{F_r}=6.09 ft[/itex] Where is my error?
