    I am going to assume that 70K and 30K are forces expressed in unknown units. Let 70K act at A, 70K act at B

    R = 70K + 30K = 100K

    Take moments about A

    100K*X = 70K* 20

    X = 1400K/100K = 14 feet

    Note - feet are obsolete units of length which are no longer used by the scientific community. You should be using SI units (metres). Talk to your teacher about this lol.
