a) What is the acceleration of the two blocks?

For this question, I used Newton's Second Law. I used F=ma. I did 30=(5 kg)(a). I got 6 m/s2 for the acceleration, but that's not right. How do I do the acceleration then?

b) What is the tension in the string between the blocks?

I think I can do b if I get the accelration from part a. I think the equation is T=ma.
