Hey, I'll try my best but this is only a short answer forum. Hamlet is plagued with internal and external conflicts throughout the play. He laments over everything form his father's ghost, to vengeance, to his relationship with mother and everything in between. Hamlet struggles to be brave and decisive like his foil Fortinbras yet remain true to himself. Hamlet eventually resolves to avenge his father but in a very "Hamlet like" way. The protagonist in tragedies do come to understand the world and themselves better by the end of the play but not without their own death and a lot of collateral damage. Hamlet is no exception, but in terms of your question, he does resolve most of his problems.

This is very helpful. thank you! but how exactly did he solve it? and i dont understand what my teacher means by what is the victorious theme arising from that resolution? UGH IM SO FRUSTRATED!

"Solving it" is a vague and awkward way to put it. Hamlet merely figures out his uncle was guilty (through the play) and finally "mans up" and kills Claudius. I'm not sure what your teacher means by "victorious theme" either. There are many themes in this play but Hamlet is, in the end, a tragedy. Hamlet gets carried out like a soldier under young Fortinbras' orders. Hamlet would have liked that considering Fortinbras was his hero. Hamlet thought himself rather a coward so in that sense there is a type of victory.

OK! thank you soo much it helped a bunch :D your the best! I truly appreciate it alot :)

Glad to help!
