## Homework Equations

Cosine rule

|F| = √(F

_{x}

^{2}+ F

_{y}

^{2})

## The Attempt at a Solution

I tried to calculate the force components in the x and y direction for both and got two expressions for R (one from each system) and made them equal each other. However I have two unknowns (F1 and F2) when I try this and am unsure how to proceed :/
