uh...no...(scratches head in confusion) can you put that in dumb people terms?

Dumb people terms is all I speak.

Anyway the problem goes like this:

How many days should two people stay in Vegas so that the price per person per day is at a minimum, given that the price of the round trip ticket is (amount here) and the price per night at the hotel is (another amount here)? I believe it's a max-min problem because the price per day goes down until a certain point, and then it starts going up.
