There is a spring with one end attached to a wall and the other end attached to a mass of 1.19 kg. On the other side of the mass is another spring whose other end is attached to another wall. The springs are identical and have a spring constant value of 49.7 N/m. What is the period?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I drew out a picture and I know that I need to use the equation T=2pi*square root of mass/k but with some modifications to the k. At first I thought that, with the spring being identical on both sides, the spring force would cancel out, but obviously that was wrong. How would I be able to use a modified form of this equation to solve for the period?
