Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you will need to sum forces in the xdirection and the ydirection, using sin() and cos(), like this: xdirection: 0 = 130*cos(27) + 50*cos(17) + other forces I didn't do ydirection: 0 = 130*sin(27)  50*sin(17) + other forces I didn't put in does this get you started in the right direction? so finish summing the forces in the x and y direction, i've started it for you, you need to finish the two equations above. once they are finished, you will be able to solve for force F by using algebra in either equation, x or y. dw:1382502332079:dw
