**W = F*X, X=displacement**

Esubk = (.5)m*v^2

Esubk = (.5)m*v^2

I simply subbed in the 700J for the work, used 3m as the displacement and solved the equation for F.

My classmates have been solving this using 10m instead of 3m. I am unsure of what the correct solving process for this is. My answer was 200 using only one significant figure.
