Answer

Please see the work below.

Work Step by Step

We know that the tension at one end is given as $T_1=(m+M)a$ We plug in the known values to obtain: $T_1=(11+1.8)(2.3)=29N$ The tension at the other end is given as $T_2=Ma$ We plug in the known values to obtain: $T_2=(11)(23)=25N$ The tension forces are not equal as the handle is not mass-less.
