T tension of string, W weight of the box, N force normal to and exerted by the inclined plane on the box, Fs is the force of frictionForces and their components on the xy system of axis.
Equilibrium: W + T + N + Fs = 0
Forces represented by their components
W = (Wx , Wy) = (  M g sin(35°) ,  M g cos(35°))
T = (Tx , Ty) = (T cos (25°) , T sin (25°) )
N = (0 , Ny) = (0 , N)
Fs = ( Fs , 0) = (  μs N , 0) , where μs is the coefficient of friction between the box and the inclined plane.
Sum of x components = 0 M g sin(35°) + T cos (25°) + 0  μs N = 0
which may be rewritten as
T cos (25°) = μs N + M g sin(35°)
sum of y components = 0 M g cos(35°) + T sin (25°) + N + 0 = 0
T sin (25°) = M g cos(35°)  N
We now need to solve the system of two equations with two unknowns T and N.
T cos (25°) = μs N + M g sin(35°) (equation 1)
T sin (25°) = M g cos(35°)  N (equation 2)
solve equation 2 above for N to get
N = M g cos(35°)  T sin (25°)
Substitute N by M g cos(35°)  T sin (25°) in eq 1 to get
T cos (25°) = μs [ M g cos(35°)  T sin (25°) ] + M g sin(35°)
rewrite above equation as follows
T [ cos (25°) + μs sin (25°) ] = μs M g cos(35°) + M g sin(35°)
Solve for T
T =
 M g cos(35°) + T sin (25°) + N + 0 = 0
μs M g cos(35°) + M g sin(35°)
cos (25°) + μs sin (25°)
Substitute with numerical Values
μs = 0.3, M = 10 Kg, g = 10 m/s^2
T ≈ 79.3 NUse N = M g cos(35°)  T sin (25°) found above
N = 100 cos(35°)  79.3 sin (25°) ≈ 48.4 N
 M g sin(35°) + T cos (25°) + 0  μs N = 0
