Block A has a mass of 5.26 kg and is on a rough incline of 16.0°to the horizontal. Block B has a mass of 4.80 kg and the coefficient of kinetic friction between Block A and the plane is 0.204. What is the acceleration of the blocks?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Equations= fnet=ma

Attempt:(4.8+5.26)a=(4.8)g-(5.26)gsin(16°)-(μ)(9.8)(5.26)(cos(16°))

Therefore a=3.00m/s^2

This comes out to be the wrong answer, according to the key. Help?!
