## Homework Statement

I am having difficulty with the algebra for a particular statics problem. A weight is hanging down and three strings and a spring support it in equilibrium. FBA is the force acting along the BA vector. I must solved for alpha in terms of FBA. There is also a spring force acting on the weight

how do i solve for FBA?

FBAcos(10/FBA)=10(((10-5cos(10/FBA))-5)
