A sled is pulled across the barren winter landscape at an angle of 26.0° from the ground with a force of 74 N. If the sled is pulled over a distance of 27 m, how much work was done on the sled? Round your answer to two decimals

2. Relevant equations

W = f x s x Cos

3. The attempt at a solution

I calculated the force , 74, times 27 to get 1998. Then I multiplied 1998 by the cosine of 26 to get 1292.54 but it says that it's wrong. My teacher told me to think about the displacements but I don't get his meaning.
