the radius of the spill is 42 feet?

Yeah, related rates.

\(A=\pi r^2\) and so \(A'=2\pi rr'\)

- anonymous

you are told \(r'=1.5\) and \(r=42\)
plug in the numbers and get \(A'\) in one step

- anonymous

wow, that was easy. I'm terrible at these.

- anonymous

yeah, i have to admit that one was real easy
they get harder

- anonymous

:(

- anonymous

i am willing to bet that you knew the formula for the area of a circle

- anonymous

yeah, I was just thinking like A=pi(r^t/1.5)^2 then I was super confused

- anonymous

That made absolutely no sense to me.
