Those weird squiqqles are supposed to represent springs. Not exactly an artist :D
F = kx
The Attempt at a Solution
After drawing a fbd and breaking the tension into x and y components I got:
ΣFy T(sinθ) =5
ΣFx T(cosθ) = T(cosθ)
T = 5x since the force acting on the spring is T and k is given as 5.
I tried taking the given 4ft into consideration, I tried seeing if there was some substitution I could make to solve any of those equations. Been struggling for like an hour now...
