Can someone help me solve this Physics question(about momentum)....?

A 2.0 Kg body is initially travelling at a velocity of 40 meters/sec East, If a constant force of 10 Newtons due East is applied to the body for 5 seconds , the final speed the body is?

2. Relevant equations

Am not sure

3. The attempt at a solution

My own answer to this question was 65m/s.... I manipulated Newton's second law...a=F/mass,,, and I got ....v2(final velocity) = Ft/m- v1. Pls explain if your answer is different.
