Look at the angle the string makes with the pole. .12/1.2=sinTheta Now draw the vector diagram at the ball: mg downard, Tension along the string, and H the horizontal force. h/mg=TanTheta For this angle, you can use the small angle approximation that sine and tangent are equal...

Consider the forces acting where the arrow is held. Perform a force balance along the direction of the arrow. F = 28.7 pulls the string and the string has tension T on both sides of the arrow, inclined 69 degrees to the horizontal. 2 T cos 69 = 28.7 lb Solve for T
