As the block slides down, the triangle moves to the right. What are the accelerations of the block and triangle?

As your first post, I will give you some hints. You should draw the free body diagrams for both the mass and triangular block and mass and find all forces acting on them. But for the problem, should there be a diagram given or the masses and other values required? __________________ Good results were achieved and the new task is to become a good doctor.
