Mechanics vector problem
The attachment shows a particle of mass 2.6kg maintained in equilibrium in a veritical place by forces of 5P N and 12 P N which are perpendicular. Find
a) Ѳ the angle at which the force of 5P N is inclined to the vertical
b) the value of P
any help would be great (Itwasntme)

equilibrium in the ydirection ...
$\displaystyle 5P\cos{\theta} + 12P\sin{\theta} = 2.6g$
equilibrium in the xdirection ...
$\displaystyle 5P\sin{\theta} = 12P\cos{\theta}$
solve the system for $\displaystyle P$ and $\displaystyle \theta$
