# Math Help - Laws of motion (check my answer)

1. ## Laws of motion (check my answer)

Question:
An empty truck with mass of 2500kg has an engine that will accelerate at a rate of $1.5m/s^2$ .What will be the acceleration when the truvk has an additional load of 1500kg?

Attempt:
2500*1.5=4000*x
$x=\frac{2500*1.5}{4000} =0.9375$

Am I correct ?
Thank you
