    How do I take moments about A to find the total moment? The answer is 9.34 Nm in the anti-clockwise direction but I can't get it

    You got the wrong PERPENDICULAR distance on some. Like the 9.3N force one, when it acts horizontally, the perp distance is 2.5. When it acts vertically, the perp distance is 1.6. Same idea for the 2.9N force.
