how do i do this

A force of 230 N applied on a hydraulic lift raises an automobile weighing 6500 N. If the applied force is exerted on a 7.0 m^2 piston, what is the area of the piston beneath the automobile?

a. 2.0 * 10^2 m^2

b. 4.0 m^2

c. 0.25 m^2

d. 0.0050 m^2

A water bed that is 1.5 m wide and 2.5 m long weighs 1055 N. Assuming the entire lower surface of the bed is in contact with the floor, what is the pressure the bed exerts on the floor?

a. 250 Pa

b. 260 Pa

c. 270 Pa

d. 280 Pa

thanks for any help!
