What is the magnitude of the upper person's force?

I keep getting 1176, but the answer is supposed to be 588 which is just half of my answer?

Also, for the next question:

What is the magnitude of the force applied by the bottom person?

I'm not able to get the 1370N that's its supposed to be, I'm trying to use the sum of the torques about the point of F2 which is the upper person's force, and that doesn't seem to work
