    when you take the derivative wrt to t you should get a dx/dt term

    u need to use chain rule d/dt(5x) = 5 d/dx (dx/dt)

    instead of d/dx x^3 = 3 x^2 dx/dx you do d/dt x^3 = 3 x^2 dx/dt

    if you think \[ \frac{d}{dx} x= 1\] think this \[ \frac{ d}{dx} x= \frac{dx}{dx}= 1\]

    using the same logic \[ \frac{d }{dt} x= \frac{dx}{dt} \]

    dy/dx= 3x2+5 dx/dt = 5 so both multiply we get =15x2+25

    then you got dy/dt=3x^2 dx/dt + 5 dx/dt replace x=2, dx/dt=5 to get dy/dt = 3*4*5+ 5*5= 85

    so 15( 2x2)+25 =60+25 85
