## Homework Equations

imagine a rectangular box, the length is 0.15m and width 0.3m there is a cord hanging on straight up from the top left of the box and a cord hanging on the top right of the box at a 50 degree angle. Also there is a force F pointint to the left from the bottom right corner

## The Attempt at a Solution

i believe this question is a torque question, but I'm not 100% sure how to start solving. i broke down the equation into X-component and Y-component

X-comp: fcos50 - F =0

Y-comp: fsin50 + f(left) = 10

i'm kinda stuck after this point

i know that torque = Fd but i don't know where my pivot point should be and so on can anyone help. thanks!
