Sorry I attempted to delete it so I could move it to the maths section and deleted the text.

I'm still stuck with part ii even after help, I made two equations but got stuck as how to solve them.

Since you know the frictional force and mu, you know R

You also know g

When you have Pcosa and Psina you can divide so that you have tana
