    tension question

    A weight of 125 N is suspended from a ceiling at a single point by two cords that make angles of 30^o and 45^o with the ceiling. Calculate the tension in each cord.

    i got T1=112.13N and T2=91.91N

    correct?

    I got that too(just a minor difference in the decimal) but that shouldn't matter.
