## Homework Statement

This is originally from a physics problem but it's more of a math question. How do I solve for theta?

## Homework Equations

400 - Tcos(theta) = 0

-200 + Tsin(theta) = 0

Using those equations, I need to solve for theta. Also, knowing that tan(theta) = sin(theta)/cos(theta) is supposed to be relevant to this.

## The Attempt at a Solution

All I did was simplify the equations to 200 - Tcos(theta) + Tsin(theta) = 0

Not sure if that was a good idea or not but I'm suck.
