Here is the question:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

2 cords support a chandelier. The upper wire makes an angle of 45 degrees with the ceiling. The second cord is parallel to the ceiling. If the cords can sustain a force of 1000N without breaking, what is the maximum weight that can be supported?

I understand everything, but I don't know how to get the maximum weight. I feel I need more information.
