There was a problem on my test yesterday that delt with two boxes being pulled to the right which where both conected to one another by a rope.

I dont remember if there was any friction and I dont remember what was given but one of the questions was... Will the tension between the boxes be the same as the tension on the rope conected to the larger box?

No. The rope attached to the large box must pull both boxes; the rope in between just has to pull one of them.
