    **Assuming** the bucket is not accelerating and that the leakage is at a uniform rate per time (and thus distance) you can say that the mass of the buckets as it rises from distance z = 0 [bottom of well] to z = 15 [top of well] is \(m(z) = 15 - \frac{2}{5}z\). Check, z = 15, \(m(z) = 15 - \frac{2}{5}15 = 9 \ \checkmark \) from definition of work, \(W = \int F dz\) \(F = m(z) . g\) \(W = g \ \int_{z=0}^{15} 15 - \frac{2}{5}z \ dz \)
