Homework Help: Friction + tension problem

  1. Oct 6, 2009 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    The problem enclosed was given as a one problem quiz by my physics teacher. Out of both Honors classes, nobody got it, so he sent it home. I still have little to no idea on how to solve it.

    3. The attempt at a solution
    I drew the free body diagrams and tried to do some algebraic maneuvering but none of it got me anywhere. HELP...please
