A 2.4 kg block rests on a frictionless wedge that has an inclination of 36◦ and an acceleration to the left such that the block remains stationary relative to the wedge; i.e., the block does not slide up or down the wedge. The acceleration of gravity is 9.81 m/s 2 .

Find the magnitude of the acceleration of the block-wedge system. Answer in units of m/s 2 .
