Okay, I got an assignment from my teacher that I'm having trouble starting.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

A 5.0-kilogram monkey hangs initially at rest from two vines, A and B. Each of the vines has a length of 10 meters and negligible mass. Vine A is 30 degrees above the horizon in quadrant II, and Vine B is 60 degrees above the horizon in quadrant 1.

I know that the two tensions keep the monkey at rest, so the sum of the forces = 0. But how do I calculate the tension in the vines?
