A Carnot engine operates between 170°C and 20°C. How much ice can the engine melt from its exhaust after it has done 6.0 104 J of work?

i need a step by step process. you don't have to give me the answer.

find the efficiency.
Then with efficiency, and work done, find work wasted.
From work wasted, convert to ice melting.
