Mass Moment of Inertia of the Pulley

At the instant shown in the figure, the stepped pulley rotates clockwise at 25 rad/sec, with a clockwise angular acceleration of 6 rad/sec^2. The masses of the two blocks are mA = 0Kg, ma = 5Kg, and the cables are inextensible. Find the mass moment of inertia of the pulley.
