Homework Help: Algebra 2

Posted by HELP ME! on Tuesday, May 19, 2009 at 7:30pm.

The force needed to overcome friction and drag a person across the floor depends on the person's weight. Manuel Dexterity can drag Gil O' Teen across the floor by pulling with a force of 51 pounds. Gil's brother, Nick who weighs twice as much can be dragged across the floor by pulling with a force of 102 pounds.

A.) How does force cary with the person's weight?

How do I come up with the equation? I don't know how to do this... it's something link

Y=kX or something of the sort...

This stupid math class expects us to use pounds for force instead of newtons
