Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0This is a very simple problem: \[A=\pi r^2\] And you know that the change in radius dr/dt = 2 m/s

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Now you have to find out what dA/dt is, when r = 19m To find this, take the derivative of Area: dA/dt = 2*pi*r*(dr/dt)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You need to know what is the change in area when r =19m and dr/dt = 2m/s so plug those values in: dA/dt = 2pi * 19m * 2m/s dA/dt = 76*pi (m^2/s) <=Your answer
