    Assuming that the left hand support (LHS) is pinned then take moments about the LHS

    RHS * (4+6+4) = 3kN * 4 + 2kN *3.

    The LHS must take all the horizontal force and the vertical forces must balance so you can calculate the resultant force on the LHS.

    For every action there is always an opposite reActyion. Help exists in the action itself. Better be prepared for the actions
