sigma FX= .667TAB -.408TAC-.514TAD = 0

sigma FY= .667TAB -.816TAC+.686TAD-981N= 0

sigma FZ= .333TAB - .408TAC+ 0.514TAD = 0

Solve for each to find tensional force

Answers given are:

TAC= 636 N

TAB = 519 N

TAD = 168 N

Can someone please help, and explain slowly and simplistically I have been struggling with this I am a complete moron.
