**simple force & work problem**

I'm not very good as physics and the question i was having problems with is this: what is the minimum work needed to push a 950kg car 310m up along a 9.0 degree incline? (ignore friction)

the formula i was using is this: Work = Force * distance * cos(theta)

distance and theta was already given so i used F=ma to try and find the force needed, but the acceleration for the object is not given, and neither is velocity (so i am not able to use: [PLAIN]https://www.physicsforums.com/latex_images/90/905663-3.png) [Broken]

What formula should i use? how should i go about doing this?
