- Calculate angle of mast and the compression force in the mast

- In the question

Dear all,

I have the following problem:

I need to find the compression "C" in the mast and the angle that the masts makes with the horizontal (X degrees).

I know that the tension in the ropes "T" are of the same magnitude on both sides of the pulley, but I am struggling with finding C and X.

Could someone help please?
