The angle between A and horizontal is 60, angle between D and horizontal is 70,angle between BC and horizontal is 30. Mass of P is 2kg.

Find: (a) Tension in AB, BC and CD

(b) Mass of Q.

I have been trying to solve this question by using the following 3 equations but I still cant get the answer: ABsin60 + BCsin30 = 2g

CDsin70 + BCsin30 = m(Q)g

ABcos60 = CDcos70 + BCcos30

Can anyone help me to solve this question? Thanks.
