    I've been doing shm for ages now and although I'm now getting the right answers I'm not exactly sure that they are for the right reasons. I've had trouble with directions of forces and I've been trying to get my head round it.

    I'm posting a question with the workings out but also with MY reasons for what I'm doing. Is my thinking/logic/understanding now correct or is it just coincidence that my mis thinking just happens to cancel each other out and arrive at the correct result.

    Hope I'm making sense.

    As far as I can see, that looks alright. Your resolving technique/notation/explanation is a little weird compared to what most peope use but seems ultmately correct.
