I believe I've done this right

A penguin sildes 1.5 m/s across the ice on her belly. The coefficient of kinetic friction is .02

How far will she slide before stopping?

I do not need to see the work to this problem just need to know if I did it right. I got about 5.7 m

I am reviewing for mid terms and we did this a very long time ago so i feel a little be funny about this problem and was woundering if that was the right answer
