all HELP appreciated! Thank You!

A fighter jet is launched from an aircraft carrier with the aid of its own engines and a steam-powered catapult. The thrust of its engines is 2.1 105 N. In being launched from rest it moves through a distance of 87 m and has a kinetic energy of 3.7 107 J at lift-off. What is the work done on the jet by the catapult?

• Physics -

Thrust*distance+capataluptwork=KEfinal
solve for catapultwork
