I'm having so much trouble with this and it's due in 3 days.
Here is what it looks like;
For W=175 pounds, computer tension force in the cables (both sides) for L=11 and X=(1,2,3,4,5). Which X position creates the greatest tension? Where is the best place to hang the weight?
I'm not asking for a solution, I just wonder if anyone can give me an equation I can use.
