A child climbs up a set of stairs and reaches a height of 2.5m what is the child's gain I potential energy ?

I can't tell you the answer unless you have the weight of the child since the gravitational potential energy is mgh (m is the weigh of the object, g is the gravitational constant 9.8N/kg and h is the height)
