Hercules and Carlos horizontally push in the same direction on a 1200 kg crate. Hercules pushes with a force of 500 N and Carlos pushes with a force of 300 N. If a frictional force provides 200 N of resistance, what is the acceleration of the crate?

1.3 m/s2

1.0 m/s2

0.87 m/s2

0.75 m/s2

0.5 m/s2
