    @ swin u need to know what plane u are working on is it an incline plane or an horizontal plane/

    I assume the plane is horizontal: the normal reaction=weight=mg ur

    but is static friction only involved in inclined plane?

    No! static friction is the force required to set the body in motion in our case it 's given as 258.0N

    so i say that Fnet = \[\mu _{s} - Fg = ma?\] a little do you?

    well if it's starting to move wouldn't it be Ff = Mu(s) Fn?

    If they ask for acceleration and give kinetic friction is it still the same equation except it's Mu(k) - Fn = ma?

    no! kinetic friction is the smallest force that keeps the system moving @ constant speed
