Classical Mechanics Challenge

The inclined plane makes a 30 degree angle with the ground. The masses of crates A and B are 80 kg and x kg respectively. The coefficient of kinetic friction at the surface of the inclined plane is mu = sqrt(3)/10, and the pulley is fricionless. If crate A is sliding up at a constant speed, what is the value of x?
