Find the acceleration of the object in the figure with mass 4 kg when it's applied a force of a)50N b)100N and which makes an angle of 37degrees.(sin 37=0.6,cos 37=0.8)

2. Relevant equations

F=ma

3. The attempt at a solution

I have tried to take first Fx=ma for 50N which goes in the direction of x-axis I got 10m/s^2 which is correct but when i try with 100N with Fy=ma I don't get the correct answer.Or with Fx=ma

could you please help me?
