**1. demonstrate with a series of sketches that the truss is simple. Find the force in member BE**

**2.
**

the blurry dimensions:

lower lengths left to right: 2 ft, 1 ft, 1ft, 2ft

vertical lengths: bottom to top: 2 ft, 1.5 ft, 1.5 ft

top length both 3 ft

load is 300 lb/ft

**3. started by simple inspection of the joints to see if there were any zero force members but inconclusive as they either have external forces acting on them or no colinear members. I am not sure otherwise prove that the truss is "simple". Or is it just that by inspection of the joints there are no zero force members and I need to sketch/show that the truss is stable and not capable of movement in any direction?**
