in this case, friction acts opposite to the direction of motion … who wins?

You mean the acceleration is positive so the friction acts in the opposite direction which is the young boy?

$24\cos(9) > 26\cos(39) + 0.3[3g - 24\sin(9) - 26\sin(39)]$

Thank you so much!

$24\cos(9) > 26\cos(39) + 0.3[3g - 24\sin(9) - 26\sin(39)]$
