See figure.

**2. Relevant equations**

Sum of Fy = 0

Sum of Fx = 0

**3. The attempt at a solution**

I can't see how to solve this. The only thing I can think of is the vertical forces of both sides of the pulley are going to equal the gravitational force of the mass in and that the two x components on each side of the rope will cancel.

I don't have the magnitude on the right hand side of the pulley and on the left hand side I don't have the magnitude or the angle. How do we solve this?

Thanks in advance. (If I posted this in the wrong forum please let me know)
