## Homework Statement

A person pulls three crates over a smooth horizontal floor at an angle of 34 degrees to the horizontal. The crates are connected to each other by identical horizontal strings A and B, each of which can support a maximum tension of 38.0 N before breaking. What is the largest pulling force that can be exerted without breaking either of the strings?

## Homework Equations

F = ma,

## The Attempt at a Solution

Since the tension for this case is the force, I can find the acceleration by using the max tension 38 / 25 and got 1.52 m/s^2. I'm currently stuck on what to do next
