Physics

If you were in an elevator what should the acceleration of the elevator be in order for you to feel what you would weigh on the martian surface(remember that acceleration is a vector, so it has both magnitude and direction)?
(weight on earth=130 lbs, weight on mars=49 kg, acceleration on mars= 3.707 m/s^2)
