Try drawing a diagram. Normal forces act normal to the surface. On a horizontal surface the normal force is vertical. If the surface is inclined wrt the horizontal then the normal force is also inclined the same amount wrt the vertical.

If that doesn't help then I suggest posting your homework question as written (forum rule) along with your thoughts on how to solve it.
