What does the scale read?

A person stands on a scale inside an elevator at rest (see the figure below). The scale reads W = 752 N.

What is the person's mass?

The elevator accelerates upward momentarily at the rate of a = 3 m/s2. What does the scale read then?

The elevator then moves with a steady speed of 6 m/s. What does the scale read now?
