**Two blocks connected by a rope of negligible mass are being dragged by a horizontal force F. Suppose that F=68 , m1=12kg, m2=18kg, and the coefficient of kinetic friction between each block and the surface is 0.100. Determine the tension, T, and the magnitude of the acceleration on the system.**

I think my main problem is tension; it's going to be the applied force for the first mass, and is going to oppose the applied force for the second mass. So when writing my ƩFx = ma equation, how can I account for the net force with respect to both masses?
