## Homework Statement

Two 20 lb forces are applied to a ratchet wrench down at A and up at B to loosen bolt β. Find the sum of the moments of the two forces about the axis (x) of the bolt.

## Homework Equations

What are the moments at point A, B, and Q?

How do I find the moment about the x axis and not at the bolt β?

## The Attempt at a Solution

Not sure how to set up the problem because of the different pivots Q and B which are angled.
