I have no idea how we are expected to be able to solve this during the short time of the exam!
Here is my answer it’s a bit messy, i tried to develop what crackbmat said since i didn’t really get their answer at first (link: 2008 Section 2 Question 19 - Crack BMAT)
tbh this type of question scares me :<
I believe the BMAT bearing section is not high yield in the IMAT if it’s not easy to calculate. I know that they were allowed to have a protractor in the BMAT to use as there was a question as well that required it recently.
honestly if I see a question like this in the exam I wouldn’t even touch it
