A 20 kg rod is 3 meters long and is attached to the wall by a hinge at point A and is held at the angle indicated by cable BC. Find the force in the cable and the forces in the x and y-directions at the hinge A. (center of mass in middle of rod downwards)

There's a diagram shown but I can't post it on this website.
