**Answer:**

2880 J

**Explanation:**

The work done by a force is given by the equation:

[tex]W=Fd cos \theta[/tex]

where

F is the magnitude of the force

d is the displacement

[tex]\theta[/tex] is the angle between the direction of the force and of the displacement

In this problem, we are considering the force of 18 N, so we have:

F = 18 N

d = 160 m

[tex]\theta=0^{\circ}[/tex], since the force is parallel to the displacement

Substituting:

[tex]W=(18)(160)=2880 J[/tex]
