the gravitational field is 3.5N/kg .. look at the unit.. what does it say?? field = 3.5N/kg = "the field would put a force of 3.5N for 1 kg of mass" thats the meaning.. hence 1kg  exp 3.5N of force 10kg exp ? cross multiply .. thats how you work with force fields!

The constant in the question could be described as the local gravitational field  on Earth at around sea level we are used to the constant having a value of 9.8ms2 or 9.8N/kg.
