## The Attempt at a Solution

I don't understand how to set up the upper and lower bounds for these problems. I have spent the last two days wrestling with this, and I just don't get it. My professor spent almost an hour today trying to explain this to me, and I got nothing out of it. I will send a chocolate chip cookie through the mail to whoever can explain this in a way that I will finally understand. And while you're at it, maybe you can tell me if I should have used whomever in the last sentence, because that's another thing beyond my comprehension.
