You exert a force of 455N in pulling 15.0m of rope using a pulley system to lift a 935N object 5.0m. What is the efficiency of the pulley system?

Please help, I appreciate it a lot.

    Work exerted = Force x Distance = 6825 J
    Potential Energy increase: 935x5 = 4675 J

    Efficiency = 4675/6825 = ?
