**Damon**, Monday, November 8, 2010 at 3:13am3,4,5 triangle

Vertical forces

200 N down at middle, 1.5 m from foot of ladder

700 N down at (3x/5) from foot of ladder

900 N up at foot of ladder

Horizontal forces

F at top of ladder, 4 m above base

900 mu at base of ladder = F at top

take moments about

base of ladder

700 (3x/5) + 200(1.5) - 4F = 0

but F = .5*900 = 450

so

700(3x/5) +300 = 1800

420 x = 1500

x = 3.57
