- Homework Statement
- Masses M1 and M2 are connected to a system of strings and pulleys

as shown. The strings are massless and inextensible, and the

pulleys are massless and frictionless. Find the acceleration of M1

- Relevant Equations
- f=ma

I am having trouble creating the constraint equation for this pulley system.

I don't understand why the last 3 variables of the following constraint is divided by 2?

Could anyone help me understand why this is?
