Is there a question here?

• physics -

waht is the tension of the two ropes?

• physics -

It depends on where he is standing. The sum of tensions is his weight. To get each,you have to sum moments about any point

• physics -

the etire beam itself is 2.46 m and the person is stading from left to right in 1.59 m
