# What is the upward force exerted on the board by the support?

A long uniform board weighs 66.1 N (13.2 lbs) rests on a support at its mid point. Two children weighing 491.0 N (98.2 lbs) and 371.0 N (74.2 lbs) stand on the board so that the board is balanced. What is the upward force exerted on the board by the support?

Weight of the board plus the weights of both kids.

Simple addition.
