I have a problem with an answer that I don't know how to arrive at.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

There is a 35kgcrate on a horizontal floor that a person is pushing with a 110Nforce. The coefficient ofstaticfriction is 0.37. What is the maximum value f of s, max for which the crate will not move?

I thought that the answer is f of s, max = (coefficient of static frction)(35kg)(9.8 m / s^2) = 127 N. However, the book lists an answer of 130 N. Am I going about his problem correctly?
