Two small planes approach an airport, one flying due west at 120mi/hr and the other flying due north at 150mi/hr. Assuming they fly at the same constant elevation, how fast is the distance between the planes changing when the westbound plane is 180mi from the airport and the northbound plane is 225mi from the air port?
