Given the data in the drawing, find the total distance the sled travel.

I got stuck after summing all the forces in the X direction. Help! Here's what i have so far.

Sum of all Forces in X Dir: mgsin(theta) - f = ma

where mgsin(theta) is force due to gravity in the x-dir,

and f is the friction force.
