A 24 kg beam is attached to a wall with a hinge and its far end is supported by a cable. The angle between the beam and the cable is 90 degrees and the beam is inclined at an angle of 13.6 degrees with respect to the horizontal. What is the magnitude of the force that the beam exerts on the hinge?

I think that I'm supposed to find Fx and Fy and then use the pythagoreom theorm but, I having trouble finding Fy.??? please help
