F=ma where F is the sum of forces. The top block has a 12 N force to the right, and a force to the left caused by friction. It does depend on how the coeficient is defined, but I imagine the force is the downward force*0.2, so 2kg*9.81 m/s*.2 = 3.9 N. So the net force on the top block is 12-3.9 = 8.1 N, and acceleration is F/m.

Then you would repeat for the next block which has a net force on top of 3.9 N to the right. If its friction force is greater than 3.9, then the two lower blocks move as one over the smooth bottom surface (no friction if I understand the problem correctly).
