Balancing forces equilibrium

An iron bolt of mass 50.0 g hangs from a string 38.0 cm long. The top end of the string is fixed. Without touching it, a magnet attracts the bolt so that it remains stationary, displaced horizontally 26.0 cm to the right from the previously vertical line of the string.

(a) Find the tension in the string.

(b) Find the magnetic force on the bolt.
