If an object is hung from a cable with a weight of 40 N, what is the tension in the two cables?

I got some answers, but it would be best if I knew if I was doing the problems correctly before I do the rest of the worksheet. I did a bunch of work, but it's really messy so I'll just put what I got for answers: I got T1=21.23N and T2=18.77
