    so when Rp=0 does that mean that when i take moments about A i ignore Rp since it's 0 and use 8mgx+30mgd=14mg
    (Original post by Zacken)
    Yes, but it's not =14mg, you forgot to multiply by the distance of Q from A.
    And that error would lose all of the marks for the equation, since it is dimensionally incorrect.

    Ouch. But yeah, checking if the dimensions is correct is a good way to sanity check your answers, I found.
