## Main Question or Discussion Point

Hi,

I have two equations and two unknowns which I need to get the relation T1/T2 from.

The first one is ##T1-T2=(mg)/(cos(a))##

and the second one: ##T1+T2=mw^2L##

I need to solve for both T1 and T2. And if I add the bottom one to the upper I should eliminate T2.

But what happens with the right hand side? Is T1 simply ##1/2(mg)/(cos(a))+mw^2L##?

I can back off one step if I did anything wrong to this point.

The two equations one step back were: ##T1cos(a)-T2cos(a)=mg## and ##T1sin(a)+T2sin(a)=mw^2Lsin(a)##

Please help me, I need help with this!
