1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
If 1550J of work was done by moving a car a horizontal distance of 127m, what was the force applied to the car?(Assume the force was applied horizontally)

2. Relevant equations
Confused

3. The attempt at a solution
I need to see how its done im confused

There's only one equation that you need here, the basic equation for work:

$$W=Fd$$

You know the value for work, and you know the distance travelled, so finding the force shouldn't be too difficult from there
