1. Homework Statement

this straight from a textbook.

A skier starts from rest at the top of a hill that is inclined at 10.5degrees with the horizontal. The hillside is 200.0 m long, and the coefficient of friction between the snow and the skies is 0.075. At the bottom of the hill, the snow is level and the coefficient of friction is unchanged. How far does the skier move along the horizontal portion of thesnow before coming to rest?

2. Homework Equations

3. The Attempt at a Solution

i tried different thing but i cant enderstand how the problem can be solved without the mass of the skier.
