T-beam: If the nails can each support a shear force of 4.5 kN, determine the max shear force

The T-beam is nailed together as shown. If the nails can each support a shear force of 4.5 kN, determine the maximum shear force 𝑉 that the beam can support and the corresponding maximum nail spacing 𝑠 to the nearest multiples of 5 mm. The allowable shear stress for the wood is 𝜏 = 3 MPa.
