1. I have completely no idea how to solve, do this or even draw it out. Please help

A trolley has a weight of 11N and sits on a ramp inclined at 33∘ to the horizontal. How big is the component of the weight which is trying to pull the trolley along the ramp? Give your answer to 2 significant figures.
2. You use FsinTheta or FcosTheta. In this case you use FsinTheta.

So you just plug the relative numbers into your calculator and you get the answer.
3. mgsin33 of the top of my head. You need to draw a diagram, quick google search will help but the component of the weight (=mg) is split into two components which is vertical and horizontal to the plane (the surface of the ramp). I would draw it but I dont know how to upload and stuff
