## Homework Equations

sum of Fx=0

sum of Fy=0

sum of M=0

## The Attempt at a Solution

There are 4 forces that I have found. 12W acting in the negative y direction at A. 3W acting in the negative direction acting 2 feet from pt B. A F acting in the positive y direction from point A and a F acting in the positive direction from point B.

Ay+By-12W-3W=0.

Ay+By=3036lb/ft

Obviously I need a second equation to solve for Ay and By. I'm not sure what other forces I can sum up. I think somehow I want to incorporate a moment force but I don't know what it would be.
