  1. Here's a hint:

    (Work done by Juana) - (Work done against friction)
    = (Increase in kinetic energy)

    Use the final kinetic energy to get the speed.

    The friction force is
    Ff = M*g*(0.12) = 66.8 N

    The work done against friction is

    Ff*1.3 = 209.6 J

    The work done pulling is 124N*1.3m = 161.2 J

    The difference becomes kinetic energy
