Mackenzie, this problem is way too advanced for you. I never had this type of problem until I took a course in Calculus. I don't understand why your teacher assigned it, perhaps your parents can ask that.

I cant explain it any better for you than I did. It is a calculus question.
The alternative, graphing, requires a graphing calculator and knowledge how to use it.
Sorry.
