# math

if the force acting on an object stays the same, then the acceleration of the object is inversely proportional to its mass.If an object with an mass of 64 kilograms accelerates at a rate of 3 meters per second by a force, find the rate of acceleration of an object with an mass of 8 kilograms that is pulled by the same force.
