## Homework Equations

F=kx

and sum of all the vertical and horizontal forces each has to = 0

## The Attempt at a Solution

Because each end of the spring is like a pin it has an opposing force of 175/2 N on each end to balance out the 175N being pulled in the middle.

So I took at force and put it in the f=kx equation and solved for x. Which I got to be .175m but i don't see why I did made sense, but i have no idea how to begin this
