F1+F2 = 50N[60o] + 60N[330o]
X = 50*Cos60 + 60*Cos330 = 73.3 N.
Y = 50*sin60 + 60*sin330 = 8.30 N.
(F1 + F2) +F3 = 0
73.3 + 8.3i + F3 = 0
F3 = 73.3  8.3i
Tan Ar = Y/X = 8.3/73.3 = 0.11326
Ar = 6.46o N of E = Reference angle(Q1).
A = 6.46 + 180 = 186.46o(Q4) = 6.46o S of W
F3 = X/Cos A = 73.3/Cos186.46 = 73.8 N.
[186.46o] = 73.8N.[6.46o] S of W 👍

Fnetx = 0 (equilibrium) = T1x + T2x  T3x
Fnety = 0 (equilibrium) = T1y  T2y  T3y
T1
x component = 60cos * 50 = 25
y component = 60sin * 50 = 43.3
T2
x component = 30cos * 60 = 51.96
y component = 30sin * 60 = 30
T3
x component = 0 = T1x + T2x + T3x = 25 + 51.96  T3x
T3x = 76.96 N
y component = 0 = T1y  T2y  T3y = 43.3  30  T3y
T3y = 13.3 N
using pythagorean theorem: T3= √T3x^2+T3y^2
T3 = 78.1 N
Find angle using Tanθ = T3y/T3x
θ = 9.8°
Therefore T3 = 78.1 N [W 9.8°S] 👍
