## Homework Statement

Elementary I know but could I please get some help solving the following four equations. It's simple calculus but I'm getting nowhere with what I have done!Solve for T1, T2, a1, a2

## Homework Equations

m2g-T2 = m2 (a1-a2)

m3g-T2 = m3 (a1+a2)

T1-T2 = 0

T1-μm1g = m1a1(note that the the numbers after a and t are not numerical values. Just to show that the T1 has a different value for T2 etc. )

## The Attempt at a Solution

So I have tried combining equations

m2g-T2 = m2 (a1-a2)

m3g-T2 = m3 (a1+a2)

and ended up with g = a1- a2(m2+m3)/(m2-m3)After that I just can't figure out what to do next!

any suggestions?
