Rolling Sphere on a plank with Pulley

In the figure, a force of 40 N40\text{ N} is applied on a plank of mass 5 kg.5 \text{ kg}. A solid sphere of mass 3 kg3 \text{ kg} rolls without slipping on the plank. The pulley is light and connected to a rigid wall. The surface between the sphere and plank is sufficiently rough such that the sphere rolls. The floor is frictionless.

Find the acceleration (\big(in m/s2)\text{m/s}^2\big) of the plank.
