Net Torque HELP!

Calculate the net torque on the rectangular plate about the point O. Force
F1 is 12.0 N, F2 is 21.0 N,

F3 is 12.0 N, F4 is 16.0 N, and F5 is 19.0 N.

Look at this:



You will use d1 as the distance to find the torque due to F1.

You will use d2 as the distance to find the torque due to F2.

Can you follow the logic?

And the picture you gave is a bit off I think. F3 should be directly under O but it's slightly more to the left.
