Scientists estimate that the average temperature is rising at a rate or 0 . 15 C/year and rainfall is decreasing at a rate of 0 . 2 cm/year. They also estimate that, at current production levels, ∂W/∂T = - 1 and ∂W/∂R = 5 . (a) What is the significance of the signs of these partial derivatives? (b) Estimate the current rate of change of wheat production,
