1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
The mass of the weight is 600[kG], the tension in the wire 3000[N]. what is the force of reaction at C

2. Relevant equations
Disassembling of forces using pitagoras formula

3. The attempt at a solution
The vertical reaction at C:
$$3000\cdot \sin 53^0+5886=8282$$
In the book 8480
