Physics help plz?

how much force is required to keep a 780N box moving at constant velocity across the floor if the friction force between the box and the floor is 160 N?

    F(net = F(applied) - F(friction)

    For the box to move at constant velocity, F(net) = 0, so we get

    0 = F(applied) - F(friction)

    F(applied) = F(friction)

    F(applied) = 160 N
