Two blocks of mass m1 = 3.00 kg and m2 = 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.
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
