**bobpursley**, Sunday, October 18, 2009 at 6:17pmWhat was wrong with my previous response? I still make no sense of the last part.

**Andre**, Sunday, October 18, 2009 at 6:39pmFor question a, y = 3x^2, so

dy/dt = 6x dx/dt

dy/dt = 6(2) * 3

dy/dt = 36

For question b, as t approacing infinity, x is also approaching infinity (the object is moving along the track of the function, remember(, then dy/dt is also approaching infinity in vertical sense...

For question c, I think you ask for dx/dt, instead of dy/dt since dy/dt always constant... If you ask for dx/dt, dx/dt will be approaching 0 as dt approaching infinity. This is the reason:

dy/dt = 6x dx/dt

as t approaching infinity, x will also be approaching infinity.. Since we hold dy/dt to be constant, dx/dt will have to be a small number to counter the growth of 6x as it approaches infinity.. Therefore, dx/dt will have to approach 0

Hope it helps
