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

I have an actual image which is quite better than my poor descriptive skills

2. Relevant equations

The X and Y components of each tension must balance.

3. The attempt at a solution

I thought if F3 weighs 200N then that mean the X component of Fw1 must equal

Fw1 tan(35)=200. Clearly I was wrong based on the answer. How would I proceed from here? Any help would be much appreciated.
