Two sleds are hooked together in tandem as shown in the figure. The front sled is twice as massive as the rear sled.

The sleds are pulled along a frictionless surface by an applied force F. The tension in the rope between the sleds is T. Determine the ratio of the magnitudes of the two forces,

(a) 0.25

(b) 0.33

(c) 0.50

(d) 0.67

(e) 2.0
