Based on an analysis of this data, what is the upward force exerted by each bridge support?


$ { F }_{ A }=5{,}400\text{ N}$
$ { F }_{ B }=3{,}600\text{ N}$


$ { F }_{ A }=13{,}000\text{ N}$
$ { F }_{ B }=11{,}000\text{ N}$


$ { F }_{ A }=15{,}600\text{ N}$
$ { F }_{ B }=8{,}400\text{ N}$


$ { F }_{ A }=11{,}100\text{ N}$
$ { F }_{ B }=12{,}900\text{ N}$
