The slide is inclined at an angle of 52.0°. Danny weighs 46.0 pounds. He is sitting in a cardboard box

with a piece of wax paper on the bottom. Stacey is at the top of the slide holding on to the cardboard
box. Find the magnitude of the force Stacey must pull with, in order to keep Danny from sliding down
the slide. (We are assuming that the wax paper makes the slide into a frictionless surface, so that the
only force keeping Danny from sliding is the force with which Stacey pulls.)
