1i) A 200m bridge span is supported at both ends. The span weighs 100tonnes. A 30tonne bus is 50m from one end of the span. Calculate the supporting force holding the bridge up at the end nearer the bus. Please give your answer to 2 significant figures.

I'm just not sure at all.

Any help would be appreciated, Thanks

anti clockwise moment = clockwise moment so u get the moment at the other end of the bridge then use this value to get your required force.
