    $\begingroup$ Normally I'd write an answer but it looks like homework, even though not flagged as such. In homework questions responses that don't directly answer the question but guide the questioner to an answer are common. And this is a pretty direct guide. If you can answer my question then you can easily calculate the solution. $\endgroup$ – John Apr 12 '20 at 20:29
