A force F applied to an object of mass m1 produces an acceleration of 3.00 m/s2. The same force applied to a second object of mass m2 produces an acceleration of 1.30 m/s2.

Find the ration of m1/m2

If m1 and m2 are combined, find their acceleration under the action of the force F.

2. Relevant equations

F=ma

3. The attempt at a solution

for the first part i just used F=m1x3 and F=m2x1.3 and put them together like m1x3=m2x1.3 and used 3/1.3 but that didnt work
