Main Question or Discussion Point

Hello all,
I'm in Calculus 2, and I was given a problem for bonus points, which I desperately need. It has to do with the best place to sit in a movie theatre. The problem is long, and has a diagram, so I've attached an image of the problem to this post.
I have no real clue where to start with this problem, so a push in the right direction is greatly appreciated.:confused:
Thanks,
Steve

Do you have a graphing calculator? They want to use either that or something like mathematica or matlab on the computer.
