From a free-body diagram of the ring, the equations of equilibrium

→ ΣFx = 0 :
↑ ΣFy = 0 :

T2 cos10° − T1 sin10° = 0
T1 cos10° − T2 sin10° − 175 ( 9.81) = 0

are solved to get

T1 = 5.67128T2
T1 = 1799 N .............................................................................. Ans.
T2 = 317 N ................................................................................ Ans.
T3 = 175 ( 9.81) = 1717 N ....................................................... Ans.
