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

The same force that gives the standard 1 kg mass an acceleration of 1.00 m/s2 acts first on body A, producing an acceleration of 0.640 m/s2, and then on body B, producing an acceleration of 0.359 m/s2. Find the acceleration produced when A and B are attached and the same force is applied.

2. Relevant equations

ƩF=ma

3. The attempt at a solution

I started by trying to figure out the mass of body a by doing 1 N/.640 m/s^{2}and I have 1.5625 Kg for Body A--I'm not sure if this is correct nor how to complete the problem.
