If the coefficient of static friction between a table and a rope is [tex] \mu_{s} [/tex], what fraction of the rope can hang over the edge of a table without the rope sliding?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Ok, so I declared two variables,Pand1-P. From here, all I know is that mass and weight are not of any concern in this problem. Could someone please offer some help in solving this problem? I know the answer is [tex] \frac{\mu_{s}}{1+\mu_{s}} [/tex]

Thanks
