a small is resting on a larger box, which is resting on a table. When an applied force is applied to the larger box, the two boxes move together. The small box does not slip.

If the acceleration of the pair of boxed has a magnitude of 2/5m/s^2, determine the smallest coefficient of friction between the boxes that will percent slippage.

I'm not sure where to even start... If the object is accelerating, wouldn't the small box slip off eventually? Or are we supposed to find static friction? ....
