A man with mass 80 kg exerts force of 150 N on 500 kg object. What is his accleration and what is the acceleration of the object? (assume no external forces)

2. Relevant equations

a=f/m

3. The attempt at a solution

not sure how to calculate the acceleration of object, but would i calculate the acceleration of the man like this--> a=150 N/80 kg...?
