(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

2. Relevant equations

ƩF = mA

T=rxF

3. The attempt at a solution

Using sum of forces, I found:

ƩF=mA

150lb + 50lb - F_{1}- F_{2}= 0

(calling the support on the right "1") ƩT_{1}= 0

But I'm a little confused on where to go from this point. Any advice?
