    What part are you stuck on?

    In general all this question is asking you to do is to resolve parallel and perpendicular to the plane.

    So for part a, you're resolving perpendicular to the plane. That will give you what R is.

    Then for part b you're resolving up the plane because the box is on the point of moving up the plane. Then you can just rearrange to find mew or whatever.

    pls no full answer but is resolving perpendicular to the plane

    R=45sin(50) +4g ???

    Not quite, the 45sin(50) is fine, but the weight 4g is not perpendicular to the plane. If you look at salihah's drawing you can see that the component of weight that is perpendicular to the plane is 4gcos(30).
