# Math Help - tension question

1. ## 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.
