Can I have help understanding

Question description

Can I have help understanding the way to calculate the summation of forces? For example, my homework asks " A 500.0 newton tightrope walker is standing at the center of the rope so that each half of the rope makes and angle from 10 degrees from the horizontal. What is the tension in either half of the rope?" For the answer I got 144 newtons, but does that makes sense for the problem?
