Homework Help: Tension in cables

  1. Aug 10, 2010 #1
    Well i've found the angles and got the hypotenuse by Pythagorus formula, but i'm kinda stuck i don't know what formula should i use to get the tension in cables.

    Hyp=23.3 m
    angles based on triangle AB we already have the 90 deg based on right angle triangle and the other angles are 31 and 59.

    since i've got those what am i supposed to do after that.

    appreciate all the help.
