A screen saver displays the outline of a 3 cm by 2 cm rectangle and then expands the rectangle in such a way that the 2 cm side is expanding at the rate of 4 cm/sec and the propor=ons of the rectangle never change. How fast is the area of the rectangle increasing when its dimensions are 12 cm by 8 cm? PROBLEM 1

A screen saver displays the outline of a 3 cm by 2 cm rectangle and then expands the rectangle in such a way that the 2 cm side is expanding at the rate of 4 cm/sec and the propor=ons of the rectangle never change. How fast is the area of the rectangle increasing when its dimensions are 12 cm by 8 cm? Rela%ons among variables: A±xy x±(3/2)y Variables: =me independent: t dependent: x, y and A dimensions area x y A Diagram: Known: dy/dt ± 4 cm/sec Unknown: dA/dt when x±12 and y±8 MATHEMATICAL MODEL OF THE PROBLEM
Rela%ons among variables: A=xy x=(3/2)y Variables: ±me independent: t dependent: x, y and A dimensions area x y A Diagram: Known: dy/dt = 4 cm/sec Unknown: dA/dt when x=12 and y=8 Rela±on among variables Rela±on among rates Step 1 : List the rates Rates: dx/dt dy/dt dA/dt Step 2 : List the rela±ons among the rates Chain rule
