To find the distance along the ramp the box will go, you can use the following steps:

- Calculate the acceleration of the box along the ramp using the components of gravity and friction.
- Use the kinematic equation to find the distance traveled by the box along the ramp.

First, calculate the acceleration:

a = g * sin(θ) - μ_k * g * cos(θ)

where:

- g is the acceleration due to gravity (approximately 9.8 m/s^2)
- θ is the angle of the incline (3π/8)
- μ_k is the coefficient of kinetic friction (5/7)

Then, calculate the distance using the kinematic equation:

d = (v_i^2 - v_f^2) / (2 * a)

where:

- v_i is the initial velocity (5 m/s)
- v_f is the final velocity (0 m/s, because the box eventually stops)
- a is the acceleration calculated earlier

After obtaining the values, plug them into the equation to find the distance traveled by the box along the ramp.

When evaluating a one-sided limit, you need to be careful when a quantity is approaching zero since its sign is different depending on which way it is approaching zero from. Let us look at some examples.
