Question

Two workers are sliding 390 kg crate across the floor. One worker pushes forward on the crate with a force of 440 N while the other pulls in the same direction with a force of 240 N using a rope connected to the crate. Both forces are horizontal, and the crate slides with a constant speed. What is the crate's coefficient of kinetic friction on the floor?
