2021N forward push by the motor on the propeller, and the other is an 1774N resistive force due to the water around the bow. What is the acceleration of the 1146kg boat? Answer in units of m/s^2.

would i use a=f/m for this problem?

You have the mass of the boat, m.

All you need to figure out is the net force on the boat, f, then use newton's 2nd law to work out the acceleration, a.
