A rigid member ACB is shown in the figure. The member is supported at A and B by pinned and guided roller supports, respectively. A force P acts at C as shown. Let RAh and RBh be the horizontal reactions at supports A and B, respectively, and RAv be the vertical reaction at support A. Self- weight of the member may be ignored. Which one of the following sets gives the correct magnitudes of RAv, RBh and RAh ?
A
RAv = 0; RBh = $$\frac1{3} P;$$ and RAh = $$\frac2{3} P;$$
B
RAv = 0; RBh = $$\frac2{3} P;$$ and RAh = $$\frac1{3} P;$$
C
RAv = 0; RBh = $$\frac3{8} P;$$ and RAh = $$\frac{1.5}{8} P;$$
D
RAv = 0; RBh = $$\frac{1.5}{8} P;$$ and RAh = $$\frac{1.5}{8} P;$$
