Sorry, the solution is available only in Hungarian. Google translation

Megoldás. \(\displaystyle a_{1}=\frac{4m_{2}m_{3}-m_{1}(m_{2}+m_{3})}{4m_{2}m_{3}+m_{1}(m_{2}+m_{3})}g=0{,}28\,g\approx 2{,}7~\frac{\rm m}{\rm s^2}\) felfelé,

\(\displaystyle a_{2}=\frac{4m_{2}m_{3}+m_{1}m_{2}-3m_{1}m_{3}}{4m_{2}m_{3}+m_{1}(m_{2}+m_{3})}g=0{,}84\,g\approx 8{,}2~\frac{\rm m}{\rm s^2}\) lefelé,

\(\displaystyle a_{3}=\frac{3m_{1}m_{2}-m_{1}m_{3}-4m_{2}m_{3}}{4m_{2}m_{3}+m_{1}(m_{2}+m_{3})}g=0{,}28\,g\approx 2{,}7~\frac{\rm m}{\rm s^2}\) felfelé.
