Apparently this is FALSE!

I don't understand why

F=MA

[tex]

30000N=15000kg*2m/s^2

[/tex]

indeed the math is true?

why is the answer false? What am I missing? Thanks!

[tex]

30000N=15000kg*2m/s^2

[/tex]

is wrong; while

[tex]

F=15000kg*(2m/s^2 + 9.8m/s^2)

[/tex]

is the right expression.
