Four 1 in diameter pegs are attached to a board as shown. Two stings are passed around the pegs and pulled with the force indicated. Determine the resultant couple acting on board. If only one string is used around which pegs should it pass and in what direction should it be pulled to create the same couple with minimum tension in the string. What will be the value of that minimum tension?
