I'm supposed to use these variables:

n= total number of crews, including the local crew

n_0=number of crews required to clean up the shoreline in exactly 14 days

t= number of days to clean up the oil spill

c= total cost (measured in thousands of dollars)

t=the amount of the fine (measure in thousands of dollars)

I'm stuck on this, I am having difficulty putting the pieces together. I'm supposed to find a formula for t in terms of n, t(n).

How can I relate the number of days to finish the job to the number of crews? How can I find the number of additional crews with my given variables?

I know that if t>14 or n<n0, then they will have to pay a fine...
