**bobpursley**, Monday, November 9, 2009 at 4:09pmwrite the following equations.

sum of vertical forces=0

sum of horizontal forces=0

sum of moments about any point =0

I recommend using the base of the ladder as the moment sum point.

Those three equations will do it. Dont forget the weight of the ladder at the MIDDLE of the ladder.
