Two lifeguards pull on ropes attached to a
raft. If they pull in the same direction, the raft
experiences a net external force of 365 N to
the right. If they pull in opposite directions,
the raft experiences a net external force of
132 N to the left.
Draw a free body diagram for each situation
and ﬁnd the magnitude of the larger of the two
individual forces.
Answer in units of N
PLEASE help only a little bit of time left, answer and work?

X + Y = 365
X  Y = 123
Sum: 2x = 233
X = 116.5 N.
X + Y = 365
116.5 + Y = 365
Y = 248.5 N.
