Why is there no resultant force?

Thanks

Because it's in equilibrium

Even in equilibrium there's a resultant isn't there?

No... That's the whole point, no acceleration, stays at rest.

Equilibrium means that there are no net forces or turning moments.

in equilibrium there is no net force in the direction of equilibrium.

an object on a slope can have a net force down the slope whilst remaining in equilibrium in the direction perpendicular to the slope

The horizontal component of the tension and the 15N causes the resultant force to be 0N as it's in equilibrium (since they act in opposite direction)...if one of the forces is removed then there would be a resultant force
