The 665 N weight held by two cables. The left-hand cable had tension T2 and makes an angle of 43 degrees with the ceiling. The right-hand cable had tention t1 and makes an angle of 48 degrees with the ceiling. What is the tension in the cable labeled t1 slanted at an angle of 48 degrees?

    Solve the following two equations for T1 and T2.
    T1 cos48 + T2 cos43 = 665
    (vertical force balance)
    T1 sin48 -T2 cos48 = 0
    (horizontal force balance)
