If you assume the initial velocity is 0, you know that the final energy of the box is E = K + V, K being the kinetic energy and V being the potential. If gravity is involved, your potential V is mgh. If not, it's 0. You also know that your total energy, or the work done to the box, is equal to [tex]F \cdot d\overrightarrow x [/tex]. Break down the force into its components to determine the work done.
