Present Delivery 2.0

Level pending

The rate at which Santa delivers presents to the children of the world can be described by the function \( R(t) = -(t-10)^{3}+\pi t^{2}+\sqrt{2}t+e^{3} \), where \( t \) is measured in hours and the rate is measured in \( 100000 \) presents given per hour. At \( t = 0 \) Santa begins to deliver presents and he stops delivering presents once the rate of present giving reaches 0. There is one local maximum and one local minimum in the rate of present giving. The time exactly half way between the times when the local minimum and local maximum occur can be expressed in the form \( a + \frac{\pi}{b} \) where \( a \) and \( b \) are positive integers. What is \( ab + 12 \)?
