#### Answer:

#### Explanation:

Assuming that the women push the car in the same direction, then the total force is:

To find the mass, we use Newton's second law of motion, which states that,

where:

#F# is the force applied in newtons

#m# is the mass of the object in kilograms

#a# is the acceleration of the object in meters per second squared

So, we get:
