Physics

Beth, a construction worker, attempts to pull
a stake out of the ground by pulling on a rope
that is attached to the stake. The rope makes
an angle of 60.9

with the horizontal.
If Beth exerts a force of 116 N on the rope,
what is the magnitude of the upward component of the force acting on the stake?
Answer in units of N
