Ball Rolling up an Incline

A 10.0 kg bowling ball of radius 15 cm rolls without slipping along a horizontal surface with a speed of 4.0 m/s as it approaches an incline. What is the total kinetic energy of the ball as it rolls along the horizontal? How high above the floor level will the ball reach (with no slipping) as it rolls up the incline?
