    When the car accelerates at 3ms^-2 ,the child acclerates at 3ms^-2 as well.The net force acting on the child in the horizontal direction is F=10x3=30.Also,the car exerted a force ,which is the normal reaction(100N),on the child.So the force exerted by the safety seat on the child should be the resultant force of the noraml reaction and the force F,i.e.√30^2+100^2=104N//
