1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

The sled dog drags sleds A and B across the snow. The coefficient of friction between the sleds and the snow is 0.1. If the tension in the rope 1 is 142 N, what is the tension in rope 2? (M=112 kg, m=60 kg.)

2. Relevant equations

Any ideas of how to start this problem?

3. The attempt at a solution

Sure. I have ideas. But what is it you are stuck on. It's your homework.
