sry for typo..it should be acceleration

A block m slides down from a frictionless inclined surface (theta = 45) of a wedge, mass m, which is on a horizontal plane with coefficient of friction u. Prove that the wedge moves to the right with acceleration equal to g(1-3u)/(3-u) .

im stuck on this question for a whole week..but still cant get the answer

not sure if it is a question related to relative motion?

plz help!!
