Problem Using the Monte Carlo Simulation

I need help with the attached problem. Also, included are all the notes regarding this method. This is all that I have to go on. I cannot figure out how to solve this problem since the instructor skipped a lot of steps when solving the example problem.

If this problem will be done by hand, then we need to do 20 simulations just like in the attached example.

However, if we choose to write a program in order to solve this problem, then 100 simulations will be needed. We will also receive extra credit for the program.

Thanks in advance.

PS. It is very hard to read his handwriting so I tried to decipher some of his notes and went over them with pencil. Ignore that.
