Work Step by Step

There is 35N of force acting to the "left" and 30N of force to the right, so the net force is 5N to the left. Using the formula, F=MA, and knowing that the mass is 5kg, we can solve this equation. The equation would be 5N = 5kg*acceleration. Solving this equation, the answer is 1 meter per second squared.
