Before you look at the solutions, you can try to solve the problem the following way:
<br>Set one energy level to zero, so the other is kD.
<br>Now use the Boltzmann statistics to find what is the probability of ...
The solution shows how to find the system's partition function and how to obtain the desired parameter.
