    Answer:

    Equal magnitude

    Explanation:

    Static friction is the friction that exists between the stationary crate and the ground on which it’s resting. static friction force is variable and depends on the external forces acting on an object. The higher the external force the higher the static friction until the crate starts moving when kinetic friction takes over.

    For a stationary crate;

    Static friction = external force exerted on the crate

    Fₛ ≤ μₛ×N

    Fₛ(max) ≤ μₛ×N

    Where;

    Fₛ = static friction force

    μₛ = coefficient of static friction

    N = weight of crate

    Therefore,the magnitude of the static frictional force exerted on the stationary crate must be equal to the magnitude of your push.
