The problem is attached below.

2. Relevant equations

Is there only 3 equations to be solved for? Sum of Forces in X and Y direction and Moment at A?

3. The attempt at a solution

I know everything needs to be set to zero. But getting beyond this is confusing me. The distributed load does not have a specific length given, would it be multiplied by 1/2 or 1/3 of 15ft? And is the concentrated load calculated by 600 sin 60 then times the total length of 15 ft? For Ay = 502 and Ax = 7010 is what I ended up calculating but I have a feeling it is way off. Any help is welcome I am trying to understand this example problem to complete the 3 that are listed in the picture.
