How hard does the beam push inward on the wall?

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

I know that the tension on the cable is 1.32*10^4 N

From there I turned the weight and tension into x/y components and tried to add the x components, so that:

1.32*10^4cos(40) + 14700sin(30) = 17461.79 N

I don't understand why this is not correct?
