Hey, it's clear zone. You're in here so you have us of P is equal to well squared of T minus P, which is equal to P to the one have power minus P. We could differentiate both sides with respect to pee, so we get D over a DP Pete's. The one have Power Dynasty over dp p, and we apply the power roll to get 1/2 p. It's in one P to the 1/2 minus one minus one. And when we simplify, we get one over two square root P minus one.
