It gets more complicated towards the end of the video. Can someone tell me what kind of math this is? I need to learn this stuff but taking a selftaught approach.

Around 24:00 he's using mathematical optimization. This particular example seems to be at a precalculus level to me, but others might use more advanced techniques (e.g., Lagrange multipliers or KarushKuhnTucker) which would require collegelevel math.
