Normal Force = mass x accleration

Normal force = ffr/u

Since i am not given a mass i substituted x in for the mass. I drew out a free body diagram and i calculated the the force going down the ramp is 4.6x . The friction going up the ramp which is the static is 2.85x . Because the force going down the ramp is greater than the static friction the box will move down the ramp. I then did ax = (4.6-2.85)x to find acceleration and got 1.75m/sec^2. I think that part is right.

Now i need to determine how far the box will go, will it stop on the table, if so where, or will it go off the table onto the floor and if so where. I'm really stumped at this point and I am not sure what to do.
