(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); Tension question. PLEASE HELP! I have a test tmw!!!

In the drawing, the rope and the pulleys are massless, and there is no friction. Find (a) the tension in the rope and (b) the acceleration of the 10.0-kg block. (Hint: The larger mass moves twice as far as the smaller mass.)

I know the answers are 13.7 and 1.37, I just dont know how to get them. PLEASE EXPLAIN IT TO ME!!!

So far I have found that W1 = 98 and W2 = 29.4. And I know the given information M1= 10 and M2= 3. I am completely stuck after that. I have tried in ever way I can think of and I cannot get to the right answer.

Thank you VERY much!
