2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

I'm unsure how to begin the problem because of the fifth tension force. How does one draw this force on a free body diagram? Does the force of tension on the ball by tension 5 have a direction of towards the left or towards the right?

I was able to include the rest of the forces in my free body diagram but am unsure how to include the force of tension for the 5th tension. I have yet to proceed further in solving the problem because I'm unsure about the free body diagram.

Thanks for any help.
