Homework Help: calculus

Posted by need help! on Monday, August 1, 2011 at 8:52am.

A team has been working to convert diesel-powered cars to run just as efficiently on used cooking oil! They want to compare the mileage and speed of their prototype with that of the diesel-powered car.

The prototype is 100 meters south of an intersection, while the diesel car is 100 meters east of the intersection. Both vehicles start moving at the same time. The prototype moves north, toward the intersection, and the diesel car moves east, away from the intersection. If the prototype is traveling at a velocity of 3 meters per second and the diesel car is traveling at 2 meters per second, what is the rate of change of the distance between the cars after four seconds? Round off your answer to two decimal places.
