#### Explanation:

Assuming there is no friction, we may resolve the weight force into components and write an equation for the resultant force in the direction parallel to the incline (X-direction) as follows, choosing down the slope as positive :

Note hence by Newotn's 2nd Law of Motion that the acceleration will be down the slope and have magnitude
