The weight of a passenger in an accelerating elevator is \[W = m(g+a)\] so \[a = \frac{W}{m} - g\] in your problem, you should note that \[m = W_0/g\] where \[W_0\] is his normal weight. That means that \[a = \frac{W}{ \frac{W_0}{g} } - g = g( \frac{W}{W_0} - 1) \]

OpenStudy (anonymous):

I should have mentioned that \[W\] denotes the apparent weight in the elevator, in your case 620 Newtons.
