Use work and energy to find the length of a ramp that will stop a 15,000 kg truck that enters the ramp at 35m/s

Delta(kinetic energy)=W(net)

W(friction)= -u_k*m*g*d(distance)

W(gravity)= -m*g*(delta y)

0.5*m*v^2= W(friction) and then you solve for d.. is this right? because i got some really weird answers
