Tension in a hanging chain

A uniform chain of length L=3 mL=3~\mbox{m} is suspended from two points P1P_{1} and P2P_{2} at the same level. Due to the chain's weight, its tension varies from point to point. If the tension at the endpoints of the chain is n=7n=7 times greater than the tension at the lowest point, find the distance d=P1P2d={P_{1}P_{2}} in meters between the points of suspension P1P_{1} and P2P_{2}.
