Let g = acceleration due to gravity. Let the string and two masses move with
acceleration a. 10 kg moves down and 6kg moves up.

On the side of 10kg mass,     10 g - T = 10 a.
On the side of 6 kg mass:         T - 6 g = 6 a

Add the equations to get    16 a = 4 g
a = 2.45 m/sec2.    So T = 6 ( g +a) = 73.5 Newtons.
