# Box on a Slant with a Pulley#

The figure shows a block of mass $$m$$ resting on a 17$$^\circ$$ slope. The coefficient of static friction between the block and the sloped surface is 0.1. It is connected via a massless string over a massless, frictionless pulley to a hanging block of mass 3 $$kg$$.

## Question Text#

What is the minimum value of $$m$$ such that the system remains at rest?

Please enter in a numeric value in $$kg$$.
