(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

I have 6 equations with six unknown variables. Does anyone know the best way to proceed?

I've tried to substitute but it won't work for me.

1.Ax+Bx+.03536F2=0

2.Ay+Cy-212.1+.6124F2=0

3.Bz+Cz-.7071F2-212.1=0

4.-3Bz-4Ay+(5)*212.1+(5)*212.1=0

5.4Ax+5Cz=0

6.5Ax+3Bx-5Cy=0

2. Relevant equations

These are the forces in a bent rod supported at points A,B and C by journal bearings.

equation 1 is[tex]\Sigma[/tex]Fx=0

2 is [tex]\Sigma[/tex]Fy=0,etc.

I don't need help with the statics, just with the solving for the unknown variables when so many are involved.
