## Homework Statement

A mass of 5 kg is suspended by two strings, 24 cm and 32 cm long, from two points that are 40 cm apart and at the same level. Determine the tension in each of the strings.

Would the 40 cm length be the resultant or do you rearrange the 24 and 32 as head to tail vectors.

The force of gravity is (5)(9.81) = 49.05 but I don't know how to make the other two into vectors (if i have too?)

please helppp! :) :)
