You would do distance divided by time. And when you write your answer make sure to put N for newtons. At least that's what I think.

The correct method of solving this is easy! You already have the mass and the acceleration you want so just multiply them to find the F.
As a quick reminder F=mass * acceleration
m=68
a=1.2
F=68*1.2
F=81.6
