alright, i'm having trouble finding a formula to answer this problem.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

a 58N weight is being suspended by 2 cables. the cable on the left side is horizontal, while the other cable is at a 60' angle.

What is the tension of the right side cable? (T1)

What is the tension of the left side cable, the horizontal one? (T2)

I started off by trying to find the sum of all the forces, but I'm already stuck.

I have;

{Fx = T2 - T1cos60 = 0

and

{Fy = T1sin60 - 58N = 0

is this right so far, or do i have the cos and the sin switched?
