## Homework Statement

http://antishift.org/image.php?id=16122&size=medium [Broken]

## Homework Equations

Static Equilibrium equations: since most of the supports are rollers, only y-forces are considered as well as moment equations. I'm pretty sure E and F are hinges so there are no moments around E and F.

## The Attempt at a Solution

I'm having trouble with solving the FBD equations. First I drew an FBD of segment AE and placed a unit load on the beam at a distance

*x*away from A. Then I solved for the vertical reactions at A and E. But once i do this, I dont know how the reaction a C is affected. can anyone please help me with this? If I know how to do part (a), im confident I can do the rest. thanks!
