    N=Newton
    T=Tension
    X component, N
    F=Force

    Fx=600*cos45°
    Px= -P
    Tbcx= Tbc*sin30°
    Tacx= -Tac*sin30°

    Y component, N

    Fy=-600*sin45°
    Py=0
    Tbcy= Tbc*cos30°
    Tacy= Tac*cos30°

    First equation:
    Total of Fx=0=424,3+Tbc*sin30°-Tac*sin30°-P
    Second equation:
    Total of Fy=0=-424,3+Tbc*cos30°+Tac*cos30°

    From second equation I ...
