In big need of help trying to solve this equation. The newton part is throwing me off. I'm just wanting to ask what is the formula I would use and steps in trying to breaking it down to a final result.

Question:

if a force vector has a magnitude of 2.47 newtons and points 76.2 degrees south of east, then what is its x-component?
