How would I go about solving the force at B and O?

An overhead view of a portion of an exercise machine is shown. If the tension in the cable is \( T=610 \mathrm{~N} \), determine the equivalent forcecouple system at \( (a) \) point \( B \) and at (b) point \( O \). Answers: (a) At point \( B \) \[ \begin{array}{ll} \mathrm{F}=( & \mathrm{i}+ \\ M_{B}= & \mathrm{k} N \cdot \mathrm{m} \end{array} \] \[ \text { j) } \mathrm{N} \] (a) At point \( O \) \[ \begin{array}{lr} \mathrm{F}= & \mathrm{i}+ \\ M_{0}= & \mathrm{kN} \cdot \mathrm{m} \end{array} \] \[ \text { j) N } \]
