# Friction, Inclined Plane, and Pulley HW question?

Q: You have an inclined plane with a pulley on top. Two masses are coming off the pulley. The 10kg mass is on the slope. The 50kg mass is hanging off the side of the inclined plane. The angle of the slope is 30 degrees. The coefficent of static is .6 and the coefficent of kinetic is .5
Does it move? If yes, then...

Does it move? If yes, then find the acceleration.

I have NO idea how to do this. I think that I get it in class, but then the homework never makes sense. If someone could talk me through this, that would be great.

Update:
And I don't know if this effects anything, but we never learned anything about tension on the ropes. Do I need to know how to do this to solve the problem?
