Force F = (4.0 N) i + (-2.0 N) k acts on a pebble with position vector r = (2.50 m) j + (-1.3 m) k, relative to the origin(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

What is the resulting torque acting on the pebble about a point with coordinates (2.0 m, 3.0 m, 2.0 m)?

Ok so I just completely forgot how to work with vectors when they are not acting about the origin so can anyone lead me in the right direction?
