Homework Help: physics

Posted by Rebecca on Thursday, March 24, 2011 at 5:47pm.

A 16000 kg sailboat experiences an eastward force of 17700 N due to tide pushing its hull while the wind pushes the sails with a force of 87500 N directed toward the northwest (45 degrees westward of North or 45 degrees northward of West). What is the magnitude of the resultant acceleration of the sailboat? Answer in units of m/s^2.

I'm not sure what equation to be using with this.
