    Because it's an equally distributed load, calculate the total force (exerted by that load) to act at the centre of the distribution and then work the problem as for discrete point loads.

    i.e.

    200\rm{Nm^{-1}}\ x\ 3.75m = 750N

    acting at

    \rm{8 - (\frac{3.75}{2})} = 6.125m from R1
