A person is standning on the end of a diving board as shown. The diving board is held in place by two supports. The person has a mass of 60 kg. The diving board has a mass of 30 kg. The supports are 1.5m away from eachother. The diving board is 4m long, with the person on the end of the board. Find the force of each of these supports of the diving board.

I Know that the total forces and torque needs to be zero. torque = r*F, but I don't know what needs to go where in the equation
