Step 1
Step 2

The area of the triangle NBC is equal to the magnitude of the single point load. Thus, The position of the single point load of section BC is equal to the 1/3rd from the base. Thus, From the point O, the position of the point load is Step 3

The area of the triangle MNBC is equal to the magnitude of the single point load. Thus, The position of the single point load for section AB is equal to the 1/2rd from the base. Thus, From the point O, the position of the point load is 1.875 m.
