Two wires run from the top of a pole 2.6 tall that supports a volleyball net. The two wires are anchored to the ground 2.0 apart, and each is 2.0 from the pole. The tension in each wire is 100. I do not understand how to setup work. if could show I would get better understanding of question so as to answer similar question(s).

Your numbers (distances and tension) are missing their dimensions. Perhaps they are meters and Newtons... you don't say. They could be feet and pounds, or many other combinations.

You cannot do physics without knowing the dimensions of the numbers you are using.

sorry distances are in meters and tension is in Newtons.
