Panda-lum: Pendulum Tension, calculation

APPHMC-RDYM3T

A $110kg$ panda is riding on a $3.0m$ long swing whose mass can be considered negligible. The highest point of its arc occurs when the swing makes a ${ 20 }^{ \circ }$ angle with the vertical.

What is the magnitude of the total tension in the ropes of the swing at that point?
