# Trouble finding moments

## Homework Statement

See attached file

## Homework Equations

$$M_A = Fd$$

## The Attempt at a Solution

I using the above equation..just summing all of the forces and their directions but I keep getting the wrong answer(distances from the moment). I also tried summing all the forces from point G (Center of gravity). This gave me a close answer but not exact. How should I go about doing this?

you said your answer is close to the answer given right?well i was wondering maybe you left out the 0.5m in the claculation?

Does the force acting through the Center of gravity come into play?
