so i broke this up into 2 free body diagrams

for the first one i got T+2.5 = 2.7a so T = 2.7a-2.5

for the second one T-7.1 = 1.3a so T=1.3a+7.1

putting them together and solving for a i got a = 6.86m/s^2

when i plugged that back to solve to T i got T = 16.0N

but its ssaying that 16.0 is wrong, did i do anything wrong?

and can i get a hint for part b?
