Okay i've issue related to work so i thought i should ask here. Its really frustrating I've tried everything but I just can't figure out how to find work.

Question:

A set of frictionless wheels are attached to the bottom of a box, which is then measured and found to have a mass of 6.0kg. The box is placed on the floor, and a student of Physics uses a brief horizontal force of 150N to push the box sideways, after which the box rolls across the floor with constant velocity. How much Work does the floor do on the box as it rolls along?

since work is w= fxd and there is no distance given. also that to find a distance you need time and there is no time given either. I can't figure out how to do it, any ideas please? thanks
