Homework Help: calculus 1

Posted by cindy on Sunday, July 10, 2011 at 10:16pm.

I just need help getting started. I can't figure out the equation I need to use!

An airplane passes over an airport at noon traveling 500 mi/hr due
West. At 1:00 pm, another airplane passes over the same airport at the same
elevation traveling due North at 550 mi/hr. Assuming both planes maintain their
(equal) elevations, how fast is the distance between them changing at 2:30 pm?
