SOMEBODY ANSWER THIS PLEASE,
Two people pull as hard as they can on ropes attached to a 170 kg boat. If they pull in the same direction, the boat has an acceleration of 1.59 m/s2 to the right. If they pull in opposite directions, the boat has an acceleration of 0.518 m/s2 to the left. What is the force exerted by each person on the boat? (Disregard any other forces on the boat.)

    the larger pull is
    (1.59-.518)170 = 182.24
