A block with mass of 5.5kg is held in equilibrium on a frcitionless incline of 34 degrees by the horizontal force F. The acceleration of gravity is 9.81m/s^2

What is the magnitude of F? answer in units of N

What is the magnitude of the normal force? answer in units of N

I converted 5.5 kg to 53.9N

then i used sin of 56 degrees * 53.9 to get the horizontal force of 44.68N

then i used cos of 56 degrees * 53.9 to get the normal force of 30.14N

however both answers were incorrect
