In the below case, in dynamics, how do i solve this pulley problem using newtons laws?

here is the drawing

what is the acceleration of each of the bodies?

the hanging body has a mass of 2kg

the lying body has a mass of 3kg

the cords and pulleys have no mass and the system has no friction.

i realise that the 2kg body needs to have half the acceleration of the 3kg, because of the manner in which it is connected to the pulley but how do i work out the exact acceleration??
