The problem is as follows:

____________________________________________________________________

A rigid platform is suspended at points A, B, & C via simple supports and held in equilibrium. a downward Force F is applied to the platform at point P. Calculate the distribution of force F that is applied to points A, B, & C.

The distribution of force will be used in the equations below:

(Force at A) = F * (Ratio at A)

(Force at B) = F * (Ratio at C)

(Force at C) = F * (Ratio at C)

As any object added to the platform cant weigh more than it does so:

1 = (Ratio at A) + (Ratio at B) + (Ratio at C)

____________________________________________________________________

I need an explanation of how to get the ratio at any point, knowing only the coordinates of the points and the position of the force on the platform.
