(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

A man pushes a chair that weighs 60N with a force of 25N. The chair has a final speed of 4.0m/s. and a kinetic friction of .27. What is the acceleration?

2. Relevant equations

i have no idea where to start, i tired this formula that had me find distance but the acceleration on the bottom doesn't rely on the velocity on the top so i figured it was wrong

possibly: x=(Vx^2-Vox^2)/(2ax)??!?!?!

3. The attempt at a solution

it seems as if i am missing information/parts

after substituting everything in to get the distance i got 5.5633m, but this question doesnt even ask for distance. I spent already over 4 hours on this 1 problem and still no luck, please help.
