In the parallel spring system, the springs

are positioned so that the 44 N weight

stretches each spring equally. The spring con-

stant for the left-hand spring is 3.6 N/cm and

the spring constant for the righ-hand spring

is 6.4 N/cm.

How far down will the 44 N weight stretch

the springs?

Answer in units of cm.
