Sliding Box Kinetic Friction Calculated

The 30-lb box A is released from rest and slides down along the smooth ramp and onto the surface of a cart. If the cart is fixed from moving, determine the distance s from the end of the cart to where the box stops. The coefficient of kinetic friction between the cart and the box is uk= 0.6.
