how do you rearrange this equation
weight=T1sin57+[T1cos57/cos23.5]xsin23.5
when you're trying to isolate T1?????

physics PLEASE HELP 
Ryan,
That is the same as:
weight=T1sin57+[T1cos57xsin23.5]/cos23.5
so factor the T1 out:
weight=T1(sin57+[cos57xsin23.5]/cos23.5)
Then divide the weight by the whole expression next to the "T1":
T1=weight/(sin57+[cos57xsin23.5]/cos23.5)
