Well then I can type it out for you
Only two forces act on the bucket, the tension applied by you through the rope(T) and weight of bucket(W)
Since the bucket moves up very slowly accn=0
T=W=mg
Now T is applied in upward dirxn so work done by T is positive and equal to W=mgd where d is the distance moved by the bucket. Putting in the values W=270 J
Similarly gravity force is applied in opposite direction of displacement so work done is negative. W=-mgd
Putting in the given values W=-270J
Now total force acting on bucket is zero. Therefore total work done on bucket is zero as W=F.d
