## Homework Statement

Two blocks of mass

*m*1 = 3.00 kg and

*m*2 = 6.00 kg are connected by a massless string that passes over a frictionless pulley (see the figure below). The inclines are frictionless.

The inclined plane is shaped like a triangle with both sides inclined at 35 degrees.

## Homework Equations

F = ma

## The Attempt at a Solution

For m1: Fnetx = ma ---> Fgx - T = ma ----> sin35(9.8m/s^2)(3kg) - T = 3kga

Equation for T: T = sin35(9.8m/s^2)(3kg) - 3kga

For m2: Fnetx = ma ---> Fgx - T = ma ----> sin35(9.8m/s^2)(6kg) - T = 6kga

Equation for T: T = sin35(9.8m/s^2)(6kg) - 6kga

Then I made them equal to each other in order to find acceleration but my answer ended up being wrong. Idk what I did wrong
