a ball rolls on flat surface at a constant velocity towards an inclined plane

how would u answer the following, this is very confusing for me. i dont have the exact values =/

a)calculate KEtotal before it gets to the plane

b)calculate linear velocity when it makes it up to the top of the inclined plane

c)find out how far it falls after it leaves the inclined plane

d)and if the inclined plane were frictionless, would the ball's speed at the top of the incline be greater than, equal to, or less than the speed you already calculated

this is the best i can remember off the top of my head. any help is appreciated, thx
