## Homework Statement

There is a box on a platform with mass 3.5kg and it has two ropes connected to it. On the end of each of these ropes are 2 other boxes hanging off the table (so only F_y component). One box is 2.5kg and the other is 1.5kg. I need to find the acceleration of all the boxes.

the answer is 1.3m/s^2 for all of them

## Homework Equations

F_net=ma

F_g=mg

## The Attempt at a Solution

a_box1=F_net/m=((m_1)(g)-a_box2)/m

I don't know how to proceed from here because I end up going in a loop
