Two blocks, masses m1 and m2, are connected by a massless cord as seen below. If the two blocks are pulled with a constant tension on a frictionless surface by applying a force of magnitude T2 to a second cord connected to m2, what is the ratio of the tensions in the two cords T1/ T2 in terms of the masses?

M1[tex]\stackrel{T1}{\rightarrow}[/tex]M2[tex]\stackrel{T2}{\rightarrow}[/tex]

I am completly confused by this statement; any hints would be greatly apprecitated
