Physics

Can anybody help me in solving out this word problem of Physics (Force and Pressure) Grade:8?
The question is a girl of weight 441 N stands on the stilettos. The area of each of which is 2 square cm. An elephant of which is 2500 N on the ground on four feet each of whose are is 250 square cm. Who applies a bigger force and by how much?

hi Anaru

Welcome to the forum.

Force is measured in Newtons.  Pressure is force/area.
