A truck weighing 3.0 *10^4 newtons was driven up a hill that is 1.6*10^2 meters long to a level area that is 8.0* 10^2 above the starting point. If the trip look 480 seconds, what was the minimum power required?

2. Relevant equations

P= W/t

3. The attempt at a solution

My answer was 1.5*10^5 W, but that is not part of the answers provided.The word 'minimum' confuses me a bit. Am not sure how that changes m answers.
