## Homework Statement

Find the acceleration of Blocks A and B in the given situation (Picture attached)

## Homework Equations

~

## The Attempt at a Solution

In this case I tried to do the free body diagram (i don't even know if its correct or not)

Block B has two tension forces acting upwards and its weight (5g) downwards

net force=5g-2T downwards

Block A has one tension force acting upwards and its weight (4g) downwards

net force=T-4g upwards

but what do i after that?Is the acceleration of A twice of B?

answer giver in my book is (2g)/7 downward,g/7 upwards(i think its most probably correct)

it would be really helpful if you could give me a clue.
