## Homework Statement

## Homework Equations

∑M, ∑F

_{x}, ∑F

_{y}

## The Attempt at a Solution

∑M

_{Axle}= (1435 N)(11.12") - (114 N)(9.09") + (F

_{YPin})(49.59") - (F

_{XPin})(33.23") = 0

∑F

_{y}= -1435 - 114 + F

_{YAxle}+ F

_{YPin}= 0

∑F

_{x}= -F

_{XAxle}+ F

_{XPin}= 0

So this is where I'm stuck. If F

_{XAxle}= F

_{XPin}then I'm left with 2 equations and 3 unknown values. And there's no moments about the axle correct? - since it rotates freely? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
