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?

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

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.
