#### Explanation:

I would use Algebra and Kinematics here :

I know that acceleration is the derivative of velocity BUT also that if I want the maximum of a function I need to derive it and set the derivative equal to zero;

here I have the derivative of velocity (acceleration) so I set it equal to zero to get:

Does it make sense?
