(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

A ball weighing 100-N is shown suspended from a system of cords. What are the tensions in the horizontal and angled cords?

2. Relevant equations

F=ma

3. The attempt at a solution

I tried to use F=ma but I couldn't go anywhere with the equation. I know that sum of Forces (tension, gravity, normal?) equals the mass X acceleration, and there is no acceleration. So the forces equal the mass? And I got stuck here.
