    Ideal Mechanical Advantage (IMA) can be found by using the formula:

    IMA = ID/OD

    ID = Input Distance

    OD = Output Distance

    In the question, we are given:

    ID = 150

    OD = 75

    Now, solve the expression with what we have.

    IMA = 150/75

    IMA = 2

    Therefore, the IMA is 2.

    Best of Luck!
