Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So all you're doing here is differentiating with respect to t instead of x as normal. Think as though you're doing implicit differentiation! I'll go ahead and show you: \[\frac{ d }{ dt } (y)=\frac{ d }{ dt } (3x^27x)\] \[\frac{ dy }{ dt } =6x\frac{ dx }{ dt }7\frac{ dx }{ dt } \] Now you're given dx/dt and x, just solve for dy/dt like the problem asks for algebraically! Problem solved.
