How to start on this problem? please help

Answer
Dear Jay

You should calculate thecateguorized  internal forces for start. Deriving stresses due to each force will be the next step. Combination of stresses according to the loading scenario will be the next action. The last step would be to compare the resulted stresses with allowable ones according to local codes.
