Can someone help me with this question?

A spring has a spring constant of 300 N/m. Find the magnitude of the force needed to compress the spring by 0.03 m. Hint: Use Hooke’s law. The restoring force of an ideal spring is F=-kx, where k is the spring constant and x is the displacement of the spring from its original length.
