You are not given acceleration    m/s is a velocity NOT an acceleration.

So perhaps the acceleration is 0 in which case the net force is 0 etc etc etc.

Here is the formula that I learned for this type of equation: \(F=M x A\) Force=Mass x Acceleration.

 

To solve this just multiply Mass (66kg) by Acceleration (2m/s) which equals 132 Newtons (N).
