Can someone walk me through how to work this? It's worded weirdly and I'm not sure how to solve it.

Mass M1= 2.2 kg lies on a frictionless table, pulled by another mass M2= 4.1 kg under the in of Earth's gravity.

a) What is in N the net force acting on the system of both masses?

b) What is in m/s2 the magnitude of the acceleration a of the two masses?

c) What is in N the magnitude of tension T in the rope connecting the masses?
