Friction problem 13

Two blocks of masses 1.5 kg and 1 kg are connected by a string as shown. A rope is attached to the right block and pulled so that both blocks slide at a constant speed v on a flat, rough surface. The frictional force of the right block is 3 N and that of the left 2 N. What is the force in the pulling rope and what is the force in the rope connecting the two blocks?
