Minimize functions for total transportation costs

Suppose total transportation cost for a product can be approximated by the function:

T(f) = 2.1f^2 - 25.9f +121.1

Where f is the number of facilities.

Ignoring any other costs, find the optimal number of facilities with the minimum total transportation cost.
