plane flying horizontally due north at a fixed altitude of
4 miles passes directly over the train. When the train has
traveled another mile, it is going 80 mph, and the plane
has traveled another 5 miles and is going 500 mph. At
that moment, how fast is the distance between the train
and the plane increasing?
