How much work can be realized? Simple physics I can’t understand.

1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
To be able to break cement, the hammer of a machine needs to have a mass of 1.00 x 10² kg.
The motor of the machine lifts it at a height of 5.00 meters every 10.0 seconds.

a) How much work did the machine realize within 1.00 minute?

2. Relevant equations

W = Fd

1 min = 60s/1min

3. The attempt at a solution

Work = 100 kg * 5.00 m = 500 J

60 seconds * 500 J = 30000 J

Is that how its done? I’m pretty confused.
