A light string has its ends tied to two walls separated by a distance equal to five-eighths the length of the string. A 53 kg mass is suspended from the center of the string, applying a tension in the string.

What is the tension in the two strings of length L/2 tied to the wall? The acceleration of gravity is 9.8 m/s^2.
Answer in units of N.
