I think you confused your P's and Q's.
Makes no difference. I have no idea where the numbers came from in your working, or what N stands for.Just draw the picture and write down each moment as force x distance, then add them up. Remember that the weight of the beam acts through its center, and the reaction force is upwards.
But please tell me what N means in your calculation!
