Hello, i can't seem to figure this out...i need some help.

Tarzan (mass 100kg) holds one end of an ideal vine (infinitely strong, completely flexible, but having zero mass). The vine runs horizontally to the edge of a cliff, then vertically to where Jane (mass 50kg) is hanging on, above a river. A sudden sleet storm has removed all friction, assuming that Tarzan hangs on, what is his accerleration towards the end of the cliff?

umm, i have no thoughts on this one, how can i solve this without knowing any other variables expect their masses??

Thanks
