    That is kind of complicated, but this can't be the first tension problem you've ever been given. You MUST have some idea how to at least start.

    If you don't understand FBD's or resolving vectors into components, then either i) you haven't been paying attention for a few weeks, or ii) your instructor is way out of line in assigning this problem to you and I would complain about it. You chose. Don't PM me again about stuff like this, ok?
