Equilibrium of Bodies: Force and Tension

A body of mass 50 kg is suspended by two light, inextensible cables of lengths 15 m and 20 m from rigid supports placed 25 m apart on the same level. Find the tensions in the cables. Note that, by convention, "light" means "of negligible mass." Take g = 10 m/(s^2). This is an application using vector addition.
