1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

A 25-ft. crane supported at its lower end by a pin is elevated by a horizontal cable. A 250 lb. load is suspended from the outer end of the crane. The center of gravity of the crane is 10 ft. from the pin, and the crane weighs 200 lbs. What is the Tension in the horizontal cable?

2. Relevant equations

t = I (alpha)

F = ma

Sums of F = 0

Sums of t = 0

r x F = t

Magnitude of t = Fdsin(theta)

3. The attempt at a solution

I have no idea, I tried doing a basic way of doing the load force mechanics but i realized it's not only that there's something with torque and the load proportion I don't know about.
