Hi Joe_1234 ,

I saw you posted your question in the "Problem of the Week" forum, but I am sorry, that forum is meant ONLY for directors to post a problem on weekly basic. Do you mean to provide a challenge problem for our members to attempt at a solution, or do you mean to ask for help there?

As a temporary measure, I have moved your thread to other forum, assuming you wanted to get some help to answer the problem. :)
