A boat is pulled into a dock by a rope attached to the bow of the boat and passing through a pulley on the dock that is 1 m higher than the bow of the boat. If the rope is pulled in at a rate of 1 m/s, how fast is the boat approaching the dock when it is 9 m from the dock?

I am getting "-[(82)^(1/2)]/9", but the computer isn't liking it.
