You'll need to try to work it out and show your attempt before we can assist. What is the definition of Work?

I am not sure how to start it off. I know work is the total amount of energy

Work done by an applied force is total change in energy, but that doesn't help here. There is a definition of work that relates force and distance. Can you find that equation somewhere in your notes/text/reference data/on-line???
