Indicate the forces acting. Apply the conditions for equilibrium.

OK.

Consider the forces acting at the connection point. Name them.

The book said that I should find the tension in each cord if the weight(W) of the suspended body is 150N

Yes. Label the cord tensions T1 and T2.

Since there's equilibrium, what must be the net force?

the net force must be zero

Good!

Now express that mathematically. Write equations for the vertical and horizontal force components.
