Step 1

Find the forces in the members using method of joints:

Let *A*_{y} be the vertical reaction at the roller support *A*.

Let *H*_{x} and *H*_{y} be the horizontal and vertical reactions at the hinged support *H*.

Equate sum of moments about point *A* is equal to zero.

Step 2

Let *F*_{FH} be the force in the member *FH* and *F*_{GH} be the force in the member *GH*.

Equate sum of forces along *x* direction is equal to zero and sum of forces along *y*-direction is equal to zero.

Step 3

Sketch the free body diagram of join...
