accleration of system = a

a = g(m2-m1)/(m1+m2)

 a  =g(85-65)/(85+65)=4/3 m/s2

now using ,

                v2 = u2 +2as

initial velocity = 0

      v2 = 2*(4/3)*10                                     (s = 10m)

      v=5.16m/s

Let the tension in the rope be T

using Newton's second law of motion

85g-T=85a ....1

T-65g=65a ....2

solve the two equations to get the value of 'a' 

now distance=10m

using third equation of motion

v^2=u^2+2aS

u=0

v^2=2aS

put the value of a and S to get velocity
