potential energy

A box sits at rest at the top of a frictionless hill, at a height of 40.50 m above the ground. The box slides down the hill, and then continues across rough ground (with coefficient of kinetic friction 0.36) until it stops. What distance will the box slide along the ground before coming to a stop?
