In a rescue, the 76.0 police officer is suspended by two cables. The left cable has an angle of 35 degrees below the horizontal and the right cable has an angle of 48 degrees below the horizontal.

Find the tension in the left cable.

find the tension in the right cable.

If only I did know what to do...
