## Homework Statement

I'm having a problem calculating the I value for this beam. I'm not sure on how to account for the missing circle in the front square and how to account for the beam changing from a 1" x 1" square to a 5" x 0.5" beam

## Homework Equations

Ixx = bh^12/12

The centroid of the beam is around x = 2.89711 in

The thickness of the beam is the same and so is it's density

## The Attempt at a Solution

Here is a picture of the beam

**If there was no missing circle, could I just add I_square + I_rect = I_total? **
