Determine the magnitude and direction of a single force, Physics

The cantilevered beam below is supported at O.  F1 and F2 in kN are given in P21 and P22 respectively and act on the beam as shown.  Determine the magnitude and direction of a single force that has the same effect on the beam as F1 and F2.  Determine the distance along the x axis from point O that the line of action of the single resultant force crosses the x axis. (Hint ± the line of action of F1 crosses the x axis at 1.384m from O)

The magnitude of the single resultant force in kN rounded to 2 DP is
