## The Attempt at a Solution

I was sick the day we went over this and the notes I got do not tell me very much. That is why I have no attempts at this problem. Basically what I need is some guidance on where to start and how to find the equation needed for this problem. I am lost with where to start.

Thank you all for your help,

John
