OA is a 20,000 N tower rests on a horizontal ground a t O and kept in a vertical position by means of three light inextensible strings AB, AC, and AD and a force P at A parallel to the negative x-axis, as shown in figure 2. Knowing that the tension in

has a magnitude of 2000 N find the magnitudes of the forces in
,
and P such that the total force acting vertically downward at O is 25.8 KN.
