I need to solve for T1. the problem is a tension problem with a chandelier, but i have found all the equations to solve for the T1. I solve for T1 but the computer says its wrong. here are the equations and my answer. please help(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

(T1*cos(x1))/cos(x2) = (mg - T1*sin(x1))/sin(x2)

i keep getting

(cos(x2)mg)/2(sin(x2)cos(x1)+cos(x2)sin(x1)) = T1

x's are angles. someone pleas ehelp
