    break up tensions into horizontal components. Draw the diagram.
    vertical forces.

    Let the angled cabel be on the left. So tension would be Tl for the left cable.

    vertical forces:
    Tl*sin37+Tright*sin0=625
    Tl=625/sin37

    horizonal forces:
    Tl*cos37=Tr
    solve for tension in the right cable, Tr
