    For these types of problems it helps to draw them like I did below. For this one, the net force will be the length of the hypotenuse. |dw:1359861988614:dw|

    At this point it's just a trig problem. If you're taking physics you should be able to figure this one out! Here's a hint:\[cos(\theta)=\frac{adjacent}{hypotenuse}\]
