The Attempt at a Solution
I know this isn't a very complicated question but I am not sure how the two forces on each side would effect it. T first i though they would cancel out, but there has to be some tension, so are they compounded? I am really unsure. Any explanation would be greatly appreciated.
Also sorry if this is in the wrong section
