1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Find the acceleration and tension of the system.

there were no values given so i assumed that our teacher wants the answer in terms of m, M, g, a, T, F.

2. Relevant equations

F=ma

3. The attempt at a solution

F=ma

T = F ----> where the F = (mass of hanging block)g

i still dunno about the acceleration though
