John pulls his daughters’ sleigh at an angle of 30o from the horizontal with a force of 215 N. the force of friction between the sleigh on the ground is 53 N. the combined mass of the sleigh and the daughter is 45 KG. how long did it take the sleigh to reach a speed of 3.5 m/s if it started from rest? Show all your work

this is what I'm thinking along with knowing v1 = 0 m/s, v2 = 3.5 m/s

Step 1: get FX and FY
Step 2: get net force for Fx
Step 3: get acceleration from net F=MA
Step 4: using the givens and solve for time
