PHYSICS work on a ramp!!!

How much work is it to push a box (mass 190 kg) up an incline (angle 16 degrees with the horizontal) that is 8.3 meters long, if the coefficient of kinetic friction between the box and the incline is 0.6?

My doubt is how do I find force?

  1. work=force up*distance
    forceup=friction+gravity
    = mgCosTheta*mu+mgSinTheta
    distance=8.3m
    solve fod work.
