Homework Help: calculus

Posted by Gabe on Saturday, February 13, 2010 at 1:18am.

A trough is 15 ft long and its ends have the shape of isosceles triangles that are 4 ft across at the top and have a height of 1 ft. If the trough is being filled with water at a rate of 14 ft^3/min, how fast is the water level rising when the water is 8 inches deep?

Does 1.4 ft/min sound right? The computer is saying it's wrong.
