Solution to Problem 830

I'm learning how to do reactions with the Three Moment Theorem and in the solution for problem 830, it has 1077.27/12 = 538.64.....this clearly isn't correct.

Am I missing something? I tried searching to see if this has been addressed elsewhere, but some guidance would be very helpful and many thanks in advance.
