    2Tsin15=mg=0
    2Tsin15=mg
    T=mg/(2sin15)
    T=(50)(9.8)/(2sin15)

    T=490/(2sin15)
    T=490/.517
    T=948

    M*g = 50 * 9.8 = 490 N.

    Eq1: T1*Cos15 + T2*Cos165 = 0
    T1*Cos15 = -T2*Cos165
    T1 = T2

    Eq2: T1*sin15 + T2*sin165 = -490[270].
    0.259T1 + 0.259T2 = 0 + 490
    Replace T1 with T2:
    0.259T2 + 0.259T2 = 490
    0.518T2 = 490
    T2 = 947 N. = T1
