Without you showing any work all we can do is guess where the difficulty is.

I'll assume you need something to start with. Notice that if the cabinet is going to rotate it will have an axis of rotation on the right side corner at the floor. If the applied force is going to tip it over then the normal force between the cabinet and the floor will be located at this axis point.

If you have other problems with this please post your work... We can help you better that way.

Look-up the following and double-check that you understand them.

1. Moments
2. The law of moments

Then have a go at the problem. If you post some working here we can advise better.
