**[SOLVED] Force problem, need help**

## Homework Statement

Consider the 605 N weight held by two cables. The left-hand cable had tension 450 N and makes an angle of θ2 with the ceiling. The right-hand cable had tension 470 N and makes an angle of θ1 with the ceiling.

What are the angles θ1 and θ2 which are the angles of the right and left hand cables make with respect to the ceiling? Answer in units of degrees.

## Homework Equations

sinθ=opp/hyp

cosθ=adj/hyp

sin^2θ + cos^2θ = 1

## The Attempt at a Solution

I really do not know where to start here. I would appreciate any help. I am thinking that this has to do with using the above equations to find the angles but I am unsure how to use the 605 weight.
