An air traffic controller spots two planes at the same altitude converging on a point as they fly at right angles to each other. One plane is 225 miles from the point moving at 450 miles per hour. The other plane is 300 miles from the point moving at 600 miles per hour.

Use a^2 + b^2 = d^2 and take the derivative with respect to time. Then find dd/dt

Could you take derivative of a^2 + b^2 = d^2 ?
