(!!HELP, PLEASE!)
How would I approach a related rates problem that asks me to find the rate of water leaking from an inverted conical tank? I was thinking dv/dt = dP/dt (the rate water is being added)  dL/dt (the unknown, or the rate of the leak). I know h  both of them. I'd have to find dv/dt, right? Please help!

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Chain rule:\[\frac{dy}{dx}=\frac{dy}{du}*\frac{du}{dx}\] Usually comes in handy when solving for related rates, but I actually don't know how to solve this question.
