On the Golden Gate bridge in San Francisco, CA, a specific bridge
component called a socket has the following five forces acting upon it.
From the given information stated below, determine the net force acting upon
this component. Show all your work.
Know your prefix’s !  prefix M = 10 6 , K = 10

How would I find the net force in this case? I am pretty sure it asks to use VBC method
