**1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data**

Find the tensions T1 and T2. The 18 kg mass is at rest. T1 is attached to a vertical wall horizontally and T2 is attached to a horizontal wall vertically with T1 at and angle of 50 degree from the ceiling.

**2. Relevant equations**

Sum of all forces x

T2-T1cos(theta)=0

T1sin(theta)-mg=0

**3. The attempt at a solution**

T2=m(g)+tan(theta) = 177.2 N for T2 and that is not the right answer. Any thing wrong with my equations?
