Default Re: Problem 2.14(c)

Yes, solving the equation is really hard. It is simpler to show that if \ell takes on the value in the second part of the min, the condition in (b) is satisfied.

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?
