The attachment shows a structure. I'm supposed to calculate the forces in the members B and C. I try the following:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

[tex]

\sum M _A = BL + 2CL - F \cdot {3 \over 2}L = 0

[/tex]

[tex]

\sum {F_Y = B + C - F = 0}

[/tex]

Solving for B and C from this doesn't yield the correct answer, which is B=3F/10 and C=6F/10.

Can someone explain?
