Accelerations of Objects

A rectangular block of mass m is placed on the top of the hypotenuse of a right triangular block. As the block slides down, the triangle moves to the right. What are the accelerations of the block and triangle?

Please remember to state your difficulties or post your attempts so that we can guide you to solve the problem. 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?
