The load L a horizontal beam can safely support varies jointly as the width w and the square of the depth d and inversely as the length l. If a 12-foot beam with width 6 inches and depth 8 inches safely supports 600 pounds, how many pounds can a 14-foot beam that has width 5.5 inches and depth 4 inches be expected to support? Round to the nearest pound. Assume the two beams are made of the same material.
