Can anyone help me with this?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

In a circus performance, a monkey on a sled is given an initial speed of 3.5 m/s up a 25° incline. The combined mass of the monkey and the sled is 17.0 kg, and the coefficient of kinetic friction between the sled and the incline is 0.20. How far up the incline does the sled move?

I tried using the kinematic equations to find out the displacement. But I was left without the time. I know that KE= .5 x mass x velocity^2 but that isn't going to help me find out the displacement. I was also unsure of where to incorporate the incline angle. Thank-you
