answer

If you wish to check the reaction forces at A and H,
pass a cutting plane through members AB, AG, and
AH. As shown in the figure above, the cutting plane
b-b cut these members. Take the section above b-b
and replace the cut members by internal force to
maintain equilibrium. Solve for the internal force in
members AB, AG, and AH. With these forces
known, you can then check the reactions through
joints A and H. The free body diagram of the
section above b-b is similar to the free body diagram
of section above a-a. See the solution of section a-a
below for easy reference of doing the section b-b.

From section above a-a
