Can someone help me with the 2nd part of the question ? I got that the distance between the pivot and the F is 5*3^-2 but the answer in the book uses a different distance so I'm confused

The torques must balance so 95 = 6rf, where r has been found.

IMO the word “balance” is inappropriate or misleading in here. If torques are really balanced, I don’t think the bolt can even rotate, the system would be in rotational equilibrium.
