A hot-air balloon is 180 ft above the ground when a motorcycle passes directly beneath it (travelling in a straight line on a horizontal road) going at a constant speed of 60 ft/s. If the balloon is rising vertically at a rate of 15 ft/s, what is the rate of change of the distance between the motorcycle and the balloon 20 seconds after the motorcycle was directly beneath the balloon.
