Question:

Replace the three forces acting on the shaft by a single resultant force. Specify where the force acts, measured from end $B$.

Given:

${ F }_{ 1 }$ = $500$ $Ib$

${ F }_{ 2 }$ = $200$ $Ib$

${ F }_{ 3 }$ = $260$ $Ib$

$a$ = $5$ $ft\quad e$ = $3$

$b$ = $3$ $ft\quad f$ = $4$

$c$ = $2$ $ft\quad g$ = $12$

$d$ = $4$ $ft\quad h$ = $5$
