your scanned picture leaves much to be desired.
4a.
4b.
4c.
So the question asks: In each of the following diagrams, determine the magnitude of the moment of the force about the fixed point A.
The diagrams can be found here:

For question: a) I got 1.75 by using the torque formula T = |r| |F| sin x (correct me if I am mistaken)
B) I am not sure how to attempt. There are two distances to get to the force and angle of direction. Do i combine the distance and sub it into the formula using the force and angle stated in the diagram?
c) I believe it is the same scenario as B, however the force and angle are different.
How do i attempt question b and c?
