We need to see what forces act on the box:

In the x direction:

Fh-Ff-Gsinα=ma, where Fh is the horizontal force that is pulling the box up the incline, Ff is the force of friction, Gsinα is the horizontal component of the gravitational force, m is mass of the box and a is the acceleration of the box.

In the y direction:

N-Gcosα = 0, where N is the force of the ramp and Gcosα is the vertical component of the gravitational force.

From N-Gcosα=0 we get:

N=Gcosα, we will need this for the force of friction.

Now to solve for Fh:

Fh=ma + Ff + Gsinα,

Ff=μN=μGcosα, this is the friction force where μ is the coefficient of friction. We put that into the equation for Fh.

G=mg, where m is the mass of the box and g=9.81 m/s²

Fh=ma + μmgcosα+mgsinα

Now we plug in the numbers and get:

Fh=6*3.6 + 0.3*6*9.81*0.8 + 6*9.81*0.6 = 21.6 + 14.1 + 35.3 = 71 N

The horizontal force for pulling the body up the ramp needs to be Fh=71 N.
