Another way to think of this is as if instead of 50/50, you then had 70/30 and then 90/10 etc.. until you came really close to 100/0, in that case it would be the simple case of a weight on a straight wire of 100 lbs.
    Elninio,

    Based on your assumption, if you hook one end to the 50# weight, and the other end to the ground;

    The tension is the weight of planet earth, plus 50#?

    Just wondering.
