    You know you should really show some working / thoughts. Its better in the long run if we can guide you to 'discovering' the process yourself.

    This is a torque question btw.

    Sum of all external forces = 0. Only dealing with the y direction.

    T1 + T2 - .18g = 0

    Sum of the torques = 0

    .18g(.5) -T2(.9) = 0
