In the figure below, a box of Cheerios (mass mC = 0.9 kg) and a box of Wheaties (mass mW = 2.7 kg) are accelerated

across a horizontal surface by a horizontal force applied to the Cheerios box. The magnitude of the frictional force on the Cheerios box is 2.0 N, and the magnitude of the frictional force on the Wheaties box is 3.8 N. If the magnitude of is 12 N, what is the magnitude of the force on the Wheaties box from the Cheerios box?
