Assume the coefficent of friction is the same.

F=mu*Normal force=ma

a= normalforce*mu/mass

Vf^2=Vi^2+2ad

solve for mu on the level road, knowing normalforce is mg.

Then, knowingmu, look at the slope

normal force=mg*SinTheta

Vf^2=Vi^2+2mgSinTheta*mu/m * d

solve for distance.

since Theta is a small angle, SinTheta=TanTheta= 1/10
