a child holds a sled at rest on a frictionless snow covered hill. if the sled weighs 77newtons. find the force exerted on the rope by the child and the force on the rope exerted by the sled by the hill?

This is impossible to answer without knowing the incline of the slope,
For an incline angle of θ, the force exerted by the rope on the child is: 77N sin(θ).
