thanks,What is your question?
Also, be advised that simply posting images of your work and of the problem is not compatible with the Homework guidelines of Physics Forums. Please type out the problem statement and your solution attempt in the future.
It is close enough to one of the answers to suspect that you (or the authors) have a rounding error somewhere.but question is that my answer is not an exact of choice C. so is my answer right?
Really the formulas here are so simple that you should have no problem typing them out. If you click the Σ symbol you also have a choice of different useful symbols for writing maths. You do not need to use LaTeX for formulas that are this simple.sorry but my skills are not good to write math formula
By writing ##F = mg \sin(\theta) + F_s##, you are essentially writing "forces to the right = forces to the left". It is kind of artificially taking care of the signs by specifying all forces as positive and then placing them on the appropriate side of the equation. If I did not enter it wrong in Matlab, 16.9 N is the correct rounding of the answer, not 16.8 N.Hello.
I believe your final answer is correct. But it looks like you might have gotten lucky by having two compensating errors. Think about the direction of the friction force when the applied force is a minimum.
Some instructors like to use 37^{o} in problems since the cosine and sine of this angle are very close to 4/5 = 0.80 and 3/5 = 0.60, respectively. (A "3 4 5" right triangle will have its smaller interior angle close to 37^{o}.)thanks,

Yes.Textbook authors should know better than to use more decimals than their precision allows.
