equilibrium of 3 force vectors

Given 3 force vectors as shown in part C (attached file).

With the measured directions for the first and second quadrant forces, and the magnitude of the force measurement along the negative y direction, calculate the theoretical tensions in the cords that are in the first two quadrants (use the summation of x and y components equal zero). Compare each of these theoretical tensions with the measured experimental values using a percent difference.
