A father gives his daughter a ride on a sled by applying a force F at an angle θ = 26.0° with respect to the horizontal. If the coefficient of static friction is µs = 0.153, and the combined mass of sled and child is m = 24.0 kg

What is the minimum amount of force required to move the sled from rest by

pulling it

2. Relevant equations

F=ma

3. The attempt at a solution

I have tried multiple ways and i keep getting the wrong answer,

I think i should take the sum of all the forces in the x direction and of the y direction and somehow get the force i need but im not exactly sure.

HELP PLEASE?
