ok guys I'm working on this problem:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

http://img238.imageshack.us/img238/1457/b15bf.jpg [Broken]

now, I think the answer is 7.0149 because the force of the block is 47, and when u devide by the bigger spring constant, 6.7, u get 7.0149

The other one expands more. I think the question is worded weird... is this right?

also, how exactly would I go about solving for the combined spring constant?

thanks
