Approximately

#### Explanation:

We use the work equation, which states that,

#F# is the force in newtons

#d# is the distance in meters

#theta# is the angle of incline

And so, we find that the force is the weight of the box.

Weight is given by,

#m# is the mass in kilograms

#g# is the gravitational acceleration, which is approximately#9.8 \ "m/s"^2#

And so, we find that,

Then, the work done is:
