Use the Equations of Equilibrium (Sum Forces in the Y-Direction) to determine an equation relating the applied loads to the unknown reactions. Determine the degree of indeterminacy
by identifying how many excess variables you have compared to the one equation of equilibrium (one-degree indeterminant means one equation with two unknowns, two-degree indeterminate means one equation with three unknowns, etc...) Write your equation of equilibrium and your degree of indeterminancy on the same page of paper as your FBD.
