**Anonymous**, Tuesday, September 20, 2011 at 9:14amDerivative of t ^ 3 = 3 * t ^ 2

Derivative of t ^ 2 = 2 * t

Derivative of 38.005 = 0

dG / dt = - 0.046 * 3 * t ^ 2 + 0.915 * 2 t + 0 = - 0.138 * t ^ 2 + 1.83 * t

When t = 4

then :

dG / dt = - 0.138 * 4 ^ 2 + 1.83 * 4

dG / dt = - 0.138 * 16 + 7 . 32

dG / dt = - 2.208 + 7.32

dG / dt = 5.112

Rounded to the nearest point per hour :

dG / dt = 5 points per hour
