Re: Problem 2.14(c)

There is a typo in the equation, sorry.

The second term in the minimum should be

.

Rather than solve the inequality in (b) to get this bound, you may rather just verify that this is a bound by showing that if , then the inequality in (b) is satisfied, namely .

However, how to solve the equation is a really hard question. Thus, could anyone tell me how to solve the equation or give me a hint on how to get the right answer?
