How do I find the horizontal right components force? It states it is 22 N but there is no reason that the left horizontal component is the same as the right. I thought the horizontal right components force is 26N? Where did I go wrong?

Here is my attempt.

If my picture isn't clear I can use latex to make it look nicer just let me know.
