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

Problem in Picture, I'm looking for the two forces of tension in the string, I expect the y-components to add to equal the force of gravity

2. Relevant equations

I used simple trig ratios to get the distances and angles.

Mainly using newtons second law F = ma

3. The attempt at a solution

here is a link at my attempt, I'm simply stumped beyond this point.
