    Reactions Question. Please Help

    Hello. I am having a test coming up soon and am totally lost on how to calculate reactions at given points. In this example I am to solve for Reactions at point A & B.



    So the first thing I would do is spit this in half into 2 different shapes, one triangle and one rectangle correct?

    If I was to solve for the triangle would I do this:
    force = (2.5 kN/m - 0.5 kN/m) * 3 = 6

    And its location is:
    \frac{3}{3} to the right of A?


    Is this correct? If not, could someone please explain on how you would approach this question?

    Thank you
