Now the only information given is a mass=20.4 kg and the angle 22 degrees.

If anyone could help me with this question, it would be greatly appreciated! THANK YOU SO MUCH in advance!

This is what I attempted to do to find a solution:

Fgravity= mg=20.4*9.8=200N

Then to find the tension I did the following:

Tcos(90-22degrees)-200N=0

0.375*T=200N

T=534N------> this would be our vertical component

Resolving horizontally gives:

x-Tcos(22)=0

x=534N*0.927

x=495N
