If a force of 150 newtions is needed for a 600 newton weight to overcome friction, what is the coefficient of friction?

3. The attempt at a solution

I'm really confused, I drew a force diagram but it didnt help. I know I need to get the frictional force to solve for the coefficient of friction, but I'm not sure how to get it...
