**Two-block system -- what am I doing wrong? :(**

## Homework Statement

See attempt at solution.

## Homework Equations

f_k = u_k * N (force of kinetic friction)

W = mg (weight on the blocks)

F_net = ma (net force)

T is the tension force.

## The Attempt at a Solution

See attachment. It contains all my work, and the diagram for the problem. Was I correct in assuming both T and a_x for both blocks are the same?

The answer should be 0.98 m/s^2 for the acceleration but I get 5.88 m/s^2. What am I doing wrong?
