Answer:

The work is #=91.31J#

Explanation:

Resolving in the direction parallel to the plane #↗+#

As the component of the weight perpendicular to the plane do not perform work

#F=mgsintheta#

The mass is #m=12kg#

The angle is #theta=1/12pi#

#F=12gsin(1/12pi)=30.44N#

The distance is #d=3m#

The work is

#W=F*d=30.44*3=91.31J#
