you find that it takes a horizontal force of 160 newtons to slide a box along the surface of a level floor at constant speed . the coefficient of static friction is 0.52, and the coefficient of kinetic friction is 0.47. if you place the box on a dolly of mass 5.3 kg and with coefficient of rolling friction 0.018, what horizontal acceleration would that 160 newtons force provide?

Let M be the mass of the box.
160=M*.47g so you have M.
160=(M+5.3)g*.018)a
solve for a.
