1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data http://rsteiger.is-a-geek.com:81/homework%20question.jpg [Broken] The question for me is merely conceptual. I'm really good at math (not that a lot would be required here) but I don't even know where to start, hence the lack of an attempt. I'm not looking for the answer (I already know what it is) I'm just looking for a pointer on how the problem should be solved. Any advice is appreciated!
