Find the sum of the magnitudes of the acceleration of the blocks $$a \text{ m/s}^2$$ and tension in the string $$T \text{ N}$$. Give your answer to the nearest integer.

Assumptions and Details:

• Mass of block $$A$$, $$m_A = \text{ 3 kg}$$
• Mass of block $$B$$, $$m_B = \text{5 kg}$$
• Angle of incline, $$\theta = \sin^{-1} \dfrac35$$
• Acceleration due to gravity, $$g = \text{10 m/s}^2$$
• The string is massless and inextensible.
• The pulley is massless and there is no friction in the pulley and with the string.
