There's something wrong with the maximum moment.

Hi developers, engineers and engineering students, I have a little argument on you final answer in the Maximum Moment, but seriously I respect who answered the exercises here.

We, [my classmates and I] argued over this, (my prof "has" his own process) and we actually calculated that the maximum moment is 95, and 198 point something. I'm a little bit confused here.

PS: We solved this using shear and moment diagrams to find the maximum moment.

You can upload your solution here, take a picture of it and post it here so that we can point it out properly.

I went through the entire solution to this exercise and I think Mathalino's answer is correct. However, if you have time can you please show your solution because I might have missed something and I want to learn. Thank you.
