Use Work Kinetic energy theorm to find distance a sled moves before coming to rest

On a frozen pond, a 10.6 kg sled is given a kick that imparts to it an initial speed of V(0) = 1.73 m/s. The coefficient of kinetic friction between the sled and the ice is mu(k) = 0.102. Use the work-kinetic energy theorem to find the distance the sled moves before coming to rest.
