(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

When a box of unknown mass is placed into a trunk of a car, both rear shocks are compressed a distance of 7.00cm. If we assume the two rear shocks are made from springs, each with a spring constant of 35,000.00N/m, what is the mass of the box? (Assume g = 9.80m/s2).

3. The attempt at a solution

I don't even understand the problem
