Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0start by writing the tensions in vertical and horizontal components so that you will have 2 equations to solve simultaneously. remember that the weight is horizontal

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So I would have T1 as <cos(50),sin(50)> and T2 as <cos(30),sin(30)>? Or do I have to subtract 50 from 180 for T1? Thanks for your help.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you use 90 degrees there is no need to use 180

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So T1 = <153.2,128.6> and \[T_2 = <100,100\sqrt3>\] Can I just put that into ai+bj format?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0as long as you show that you have T1 and T2 answers
