Homework Statement:
Find the tension in the rope
Relevant Equations:
F=ma
The answer is 280N but I don't have any idea hoe to get to the anseer. Atleast a hint would help.

Standard methods: pick a component of the system, draw a free body diagram for it showing all the forces, then write equations representing some of the balances that exist, such as horizontal forces, vertical forces and torques about some chosen axis.
