Can someone walk me through how to work this?

A block is being pushed up a frictionless incline by an applied horizontal force, F=12.7N. (The angle is θ = 23.80° and the mass is 1.70kg.

a) How many forces are acting on the block?

b) How many of those forces are along the vertical?

c) How many of those forces are perpendicular to the incline?

d) What is the magnitude in m/s2 of the resulting acceleration of the block?

Use 9.8 N/kg for g.
