1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data See Attachment 2. Relevant equations 3. The attempt at a solution Im not really sure how to get started. I understand the method of Joints, and all the solved examples I can follow. I started by analyzing the support reactions, and I am stuck already. There is the force [tex]P_2[/tex], and then there are going to be the following forces: [tex] G_x, G_y, A_x, A_y[/tex]? Any advice on how to start this problem would be appreciated.
