shown below. The lefthand cable had tension T2 and makes an angle of 53◦
with the ceiling. The righthand cable had tension T1 and makes an angle of 49◦
with the ceiling.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1By treating the forces in the horizontal direction separate from those in the vertical direction, we can come up with a system of equations. Horizontal:\[T_1\cos(49^{\circ})T_2\cos(53^{\circ})=0\]Vertical:\[T_1\sin(49^{\circ})+T_2\sin(53^{\circ})639=0\]Two equations, two unknowns, very solvable.
