Step 1

Point A has hinge support and point B has roller support. So, point A has forces acting in the horizontal and vertical direction both whereas point B has only vertical force. Also, the distributed load is considered to act at a single point at the center of gravity. Thus, draw the free body diagram.

Step 2

The distributed load acts at a distance of 595 mm or 0.595 m. Calculate the magnitude of the resultant force R.

Step 3

Take the moment about point A by considering clockwise moment ...
