The total cost will be
cost per hour * time
So form the total cost in terms of "v" and differentiate to find the minimum value

t = 100 / v
???

No. "v" is the variable that needs to be determined by differentiation. You can't stick a value in. Use t = 100/v in the expression for total cost in post 3.

Don't understand that at all
* Write down the total cost in terms of v
* Differentiate it
* Set equal to zero and solve.
