A 15lb weight at a on frictionless rod at a distance of 16" from a pulley can move up and down and it has counter-force on pulley of 17lb. What should the height of weight on rod be so that system is in equilibrium

2. Relevant equations

Cosine Law

Sine Law

3. The attempt at a solution

I have tried to draw the problem so that it would be better to understand. I'm not given any angles and not sure to get started here.
