Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Differentiating the equation wrt time dy/dt=3dx/dt (2x+5)^(1/2) As dy/dt=4, we can put x=2 for the given point and find that dx/dt=4. distance from origin R= sqrt (x^2 + y^2) We have to find dR/dt = [xdx/dt + ydy/dt]/[sqrt D] Knowing x,y, dx/dt and dy/dt at that point we can evaluate the answer
