somebody please help me..got test tonight but still dunn how to solve this... The base of a triangle increases at the rate 2cm per second, and height decreases at the rate of 1/2cm per second.Find the rate of change f its area when the base and height are of length 5cm... ? T.T helpp

    hmm.... we know \[A = 0.5 b h\] \[\frac{ db }{ dt } = 2 (cm/s)\] \[\frac{ dh }{ dt }= -0.5 (cm/s)\] We need \[\frac{ dA }{ dt } = ?\]

    Hmm are we assuming this is a `right` triangle? :o

    I guess it would have to be, otherwise we need more information. :) Looks like agent was on the right track. Both \(\large b\) and \(\large h\) are variables. Just apply the product rule! :D

    But then that seems to make the actual values of the base and height unnecessary, but maybe that's okay.... \[\frac{ dA }{ dt} = 0.5 \frac{ db }{ dt}\frac{ dh }{ dt}\]

    \[\large A=\frac{1}{2}bh\]\[\large A'=\frac{1}{2}b'h+\frac{1}{2}bh'\]Something like that, yes? :D
