    It is best for you to show your answers and how you arrived at those answers, so we can better assist if indeed assistance is necessary. As a general rule, we don't give out answers.

    This is a statically determinate problem. If you solve it, joint by joint, then the last joint will be a check. You don't then need us to check it. Start by getting the reaction components.
