The two sides of a isosceles triangle have a fixed lenght of 14 cm. The opposite angle at the base of the triangle increases by 0.3 rad/min.

a) what is the growth rate dx/dt of the base of the triangle when the opposite angle mesures 1.6 rad? (Use the law of sin)

b) What is the growth rate dA/dt of the the triangles area when the opposite angle at the base mesures 1.6 rad?
