1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
Good afternoon im stuck with this problem I would appreciate any advice.

There is a tension T exerted on achilles tendon, that is 1/5L to the left of the ankle (axis of rotation) the situation is similar to the ones of the image. The lenght of the foot is L the floor exerts a force pushing of F=210N to the toe and the person weights 500N .

Draw the vector diagram and calculate the tension T and the reaction components H and V at the ankle.

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution
Im stuck visualizing all this how can I start ploting the vector diagram?
