#### Answer

The upward force of the water acting on the mattress is 806 N

#### Work Step by Step

We can think of the man and the mattress as a single system. Since the system is in equilibrium, the magnitude of the upward force $F_w$ of the water acting on the mattress is equal to the weight of the system: $F_w = 806~N$ The upward force of the water acting on the mattress is 806 N.
