The problem Im having is that in all the figures (in the image) I have 3 variables with only 2 equations. In figure 3 The only way I could solve for the variables would be to set the normal force equal to the weight, however if the tension is also pulling up it would decrease the normal force. What am I missing?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
