I worked through this but am not sure if I did it right or if I needed to work through as much as I did.

A=l*w

dA/dt=l*(dw/dt)+ w*(dl/dt = 45-16= 29cm^2/sec

P=2l*2w =

2(dl/dt)+2(dw/dt)=-4+6=2 cm/sec

Diagonal= (l^2+w^2)^1/2

dD/dt=(2l+2w)(.5)(l^2+w^2)^-.5

=(30+16)(.5)(225+64)^-.5

23/sqrt289=1.35 cm/sec

Did I need to do all this work, or just some of it or did I not even answer the orginally question?

then

dD/dt=(2 l dl/dt+2 w dw/dt)(.5)(l^2+w^2)^-.5
