See figure.

2. Relevant equations

[tex] \sum F_{y} = 0[/tex]

[tex] \sum F_{x} = 0 [/tex]

3. The attempt at a solution

I can't see how to solve this. The only thing I can think of is the vertical forces of both sides of the pulley are going to equal the gravitational force of the mass in and that the two x components on each side of the rope will cancel.

I don't have the magnitude on the right hand side of the pulley and on the left hand side I don't have the magnitude or the angle. How do we solve this?

Thanks in advance.
