Okay, so i am having severe problems with figuring out what i did wrong...
I am given : F1 = 250 and F2 = 90
The correct Force result is = 245 i +228 j with magnitude of 335 .
The moment given is 500 lb*ft.
I am trying to find the result's line of action that would intersect member BC measured from B. The correct answer is x = 2.34.
But, i got some other answer. I found the location of intersection with M = Fy * x (Fy because Fx would be 0 along the xaxis).
so , 500 = 228*x > x = 2.19?? Which is wrong :(
