    Did you try to solve the problem?

    If so, you should've posted what you tried first.

    Did you try balancing the moments?

    Clockwise moment = Anticlockwise moment

    And;

    Moment of a force = Force x Perpendicular distance from pivot.

    but remember to divide it by two, because the question says on each handle.
    I am just wondering if the height difference makes any changes.

    I don't think so. M = F x Perp. D dosen't involve distances that are parallel to the force.
