Simple statics (or Physics) question..... I summing forces in the x, and y, directions and finding that forces directed in the positive y, and negative x directions (quadrant II), have positive y values, but all the solutions (chegg and the back of my textbook are showing the forces in the y-direction as negative when they are in quadrant two. Can you please look at the attached problem I did and tell me what concept I have wrong?

At vero eos et accusamus et iusto odio dignissimos ducimus qui blanditiis praesentium voluptatum deleniti atque corrupti quos dolores et quas molestias excepturi sint occaecati cupiditate non provident, similique sunt in culpa qui officia deserunt mollitia animi, id est laborum et dolorum fuga. Et harum quidem rerum facilis est et expedita distinctio. Nam libero tempore, cum soluta nobis est eligendi optio cumque nihil impedit quo minus id quod maxime placeat facere possimus, omnis voluptas assumenda est, omnis dolor repellendus. Itaque earum rerum hic tenetur a sapiente delectus, ut aut reiciendis voluptatibus maiores alias consequatur aut perferendis doloribus asperiores repellat.

I think your answer is correct.
I have done about fifteen of these and chegg and my textbook have the same answers and always differ from mine by that one element, I am about to attach a screen shot of cheggs explanation of this problem and their answer matches the answer in my text

yea u are right looks like these ppl have messed up wid signs :)
It really makes me wonder because every one they are doing that has the force in the second quadrant they count the y-component as negative
When having doubts of this kind, it is best to post an image of the original question, together with the given figure, if any.
