The guy wire is at a 35 degree angle and is at 1.35m of a 1.7m beam

2. What is the horizontal force exerted by the hinge on the beam?

3. What is the vertical force exerted by the hinge on the beam?

Please help,
Thank You

Please post a drawing if you have one. The question is not very clear otherwise.
