Resolving Forces On A Particle (2D)

Find F and x
Find F and x
In the picture to the right, the particle shown has two forces acting on it: 5N acting directly Down (negative Y axis) and 10N acting on 45 degrees to the X axis, If the particle is in static equilibrium, find the magnitude (F) and direction (x) of the unknown force.

Assume that the positive X axis points to the right and the positive Y axis points to the top of your screen.
