A 60kg man is climbing a rope that is connected to a pulley and on the other side the rope is connected to a 100kg block. what is the tension in the rope?

2. Relevant equations

T-mg+F=ma

3. The attempt at a solution

this was my attempt:

Mg-T-F=Ma;

adding the equations;

I get a=0.4

T+F=60(g+a)

=840N

but the answer is wrong. where did i go wrong??
