    I was going over the practice quiz #2 which states the following:

    A 200 kg block is placed on an inclined place with angle of inclination 40 degrees with coefficient of kinetic friction u = 0.05. What is the acceleration of the block?

    Formula I used:
    a = g sin(40) – ug cos(40)

    The answer key states it is 6.3 m/s^2.

    However I get 5.9 m/s^2. Is my answer or the one on the answer key wrong?
