The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Okay, So I Have A Physics Packet That My Teacher Handed Out On Inclined Planes. I Was Not There So I Do Not Know How To Complete The Table. I Have To Complete A Chart. The Chart Gives Me The Length Of The Incline, The Height, & The M.A. . I Know How To Calculate The M.A. But I Don't Know how To Find The Resistance & The Force. I Want To Know How You Can Calculate The Resistance & The Force By Knowing The Length & Height Of The Incline, & The M.A.

My Attempt To Solve It :
Length - 10 m
Height - 5 m
M.A. - 2
# of Times The Force Is Multiplied - 2
Resistance - 100 N
Force - 50 N

Welcome to PF;
What does "M.A." stand for in this case?

To solve inclined planes problems, you draw a free body diagram and sum the forces.
The trick is to align the coordinate axis to the surface of the plane and not the horizontal.
Use $\sum F=ma$ in x and y directions.

Just a pointer: when you type an English sentence, you only need to use a capital letter for the first character and for proper nouns. Caps on all words like you did makes it hard to read. Cheers.
