Please help me answer this problem.How do I answer this if I don't have the mass of the monkey and the scooter together?
At a circus animal training facility, a monkey rides a miniature motorscooter at a speed of 7.0 m/s. The monkey and scooter together have a mass of m kg. Meanwhile, a chimpanzee on roller skates with a total mass of 44 kg moves at a speed of 1.5 meters per second. The magnitude of the momentum of the monkey plus scooter is how many times the magnitude of the momentum of the chimpanzee plus skates?
