(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

I have attached the question.

2. Relevant equations

W=Fd

3. The attempt at a solution

I get the answer as 240, but the correct answer is 120. What I did was get the component of the weight using mgsinθ = 6, then 6x40.

The answer says you need to do 360-240=120. I'm confused with what each value is.
