Work pushing car up incline.

More of a generalization than anything. Is the work done independent of the angle of the hill seeing as all we're concerned with is the change in h?

I had two problems on the homework. One carrying a backpack up a hill where the angle wasn't given and not necessary and another with pushing a car up a hill where the angle was given and necessary to get the correct solution. Trying to differentiate when I need the angle and not

2. Relevant equations

W=F(d cos <) and W=Fh (when h=cos< x d)

3. The attempt at a solution
