    \[\frac{dy}{dt} = 2 cm/\sec\] \[\frac{dx}{dt} = 3 cm/\sec\] \[determine \frac{dA}{dt}\]

    i need the area value at any instant in term of "t"

    A(t) = (1/2)(20-2t)(15+3t)

    \[\frac{d}{dt}A(t)= \frac{d}{dt}\frac{1}{2}*(20-2t)(15+3t)\]

    it has to at t=10, because after this point, the area would be negative and negative areas dont exist (sort of)

    i mean you might see negative areas when doing derivatives, but for this problem, i dont think negative areas count

    but area at any instant =0.5(20-2t)(15+3t) ;then area=\[-3t ^{2}+15t+150\] then ;the rate of change of area at any instant=-6t+15; at rate stops -6t+15=0;then the variation stops at (15/6) not at 10 ;if i have any mistake tell me please

    @completeidiot He asked when will the variation stop, so the idea is about letting the derivative(dA/dt) = 0 , not the the area [A(t)]= 0
