apparent weight/elevator problem

1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
As part of a physics experiment, you stand on a bathroom scale in an elevator. Though your normal weight is 610 N, the scale at the moment reads 760 N. Calculate the magnitude of the elevator's acceleration. What, if anything, can you say about the velocity of the elevator? Explain.

2. Relevant equations
Wa=m(g+a) maybe?

3. The attempt at a solution
760=62(12.2+a)

 jeez -_- that was so easy LOL thank you so much for pointing me in the right direction...i have laryngitis so my mind isn't exactly functioning correctly =)

i figured out the acceleration...2.4 m/s^2 but i don't know how to answer this part...What, if anything, can you say about the velocity of the elevator? Explain.
