2 weights of 20 N and 10 N are hung from 3 ropes. Find the tension of T_{1}, T_{2}, and T_{3}:

The attempt at a solution

If I designate one of the points as the origin, I get:

[tex]T_1sin45+T_2sin0+T_3sin30=30 N[/tex]

and

[tex]T_2cos0+T_3cos30-T_1sin45=0[/tex]

I'm having trouble finding a third equation... if those two are even right in the first place.
