Welcome to the Forums,

What have you attempted thus far? For future reference, we have homework forums for such questions.

This looks like a homework question. We cannot help with homework until you have posted you attempt. So, do you have any thoughts?

In future, please post in the homework forum!

Edit: EVERY time you beat me, Hoot!!
