Anyway, the biggest problem is that I still don't quite understand. This is why I want to re-read every math I've learned until now to get e better understanding. It's quite sad that I'm in university knowing too much about maths and can't solve a simple problem like this, especially while I'm an Electrical and computer engineer, which our goal is to solve problems using maths.
