Answer:Explanation:F = ma is a linear equation. This means that the Force change as the accleration changes. And vice versa. If the Force is cut in thirds, then the acceleration is also cut in thirds. Let’s do some math on this just to prove it, shall we?

We know that at first, the F = 15. Let’s give this object a mass of 5kg. That means that

15 = 5a so

a = 3

Then the F is cut into thirds, so

5 = 5a so

a = 1

The second acceleration is one-third of the first one, where the Force is 3 times greater.
