# calculus help work

a force of 1250 pounds compresses a spring 5 inches from its natural length. find the work done in compressing the spring 8 additional inches.

f=kd
1250=k5
k=250

then what do i do. i have to do this the calculus way, not the physics way. by using integrals

a.3250
b.21,125
c.18000
d.2000
e. none of these

are you in grade 12? do you wear ties and hats? is your middle name caleb? (im serious! i think i know you!)

and i am not sure about the question... sorry!
