Current Topic:
Simply supported beam calculation

Yes, I agree.  For the reactions to be equal the distributed load has to be  centered about the center line.  So if the beam is of length L (center at L/2) and the center of the distributed load is  a distance b from the center line you need to shift it by that amount (b) to center it.
