I'm so stuck on this problem. I got it completely wrong on my test because I don't even know where to start. All i recall is that we mus use the vector approach? The problem states:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

For the figure shown, calculate the reactions at point O due to the tensions in the two cables BA and BC. T(BA)=700 N, T(BC)=800 N. Assume that the tree is rigidly fixed to the ground.
