I worked it as follows:

Force of friction=Force normal * co-effic. of friction which is .72*5*9.8=35.28 but answer in back of my book says this is wrong. Where did I err?

Coefficient= .72

Normal Force= mass*g

9.81*5

49.05

Solve: 49.05*0.72

35.316 or 35.32

Is that what you got? If it is, you're right. If not, recheck the book, it may be that you are looking at the wrong answer.
