    [a]

    Resolve vertically

    W + 2W + Rsin(theta) = F + Tsin(theta)

    Resolve horizontally

    Rcos(theta) = Tcos(theta)

    Take moments about A

    Tsin(theta)(2a) = Wa + 2W(2a - x)
    (6/5)aT = 5Wa - 2Wx
    (6/5)aT = W(5a - 2x)
    6at = 5W(5a - 2x)
    T = 5W(5a-2x)/6a (as required)

    [b]

    Tsin(theta) = Rsin(theta)
    (7/6)W = (3/5)[5W(5a - 2x)/6a]
    (7/6) = (5a - 2x)/2a
    (14/6)a = 5a - 2x
    2x = 5a - (14/6)a
    x = (4/3)a

    [c]

    Rcos(theta) = Tcos(theta)
    T = [5W(11/3)a]/6a
    T = (55/18)W
    Tcos(theta) = (55/18)W x (4/5)
    Tcos(theta) = (220/90)W
    Tcos(theta) = (22/9)W

    I have tried to make it as clear as possible, let me know if you do not follow any point.

    Thanks

    You lazy F**k. You should use IN's help as guide to working through the problem yourself.
    You may think its clever getting someone else to do the work -but it will come back and bite you in the A*** one day!!
