A. Fnd an equation that relates the total length of the elastic x to the distance y that the button has moved.

B. You pull the button at a constant 3 cm/sec. Find the rate at which the length of the elastic is increasing when it is 12 cm long.

**Steve**, Monday, January 16, 2012 at 12:00amyou have two right triangles of height y

2.5^2 + y^2 = (x/2)^2

or

25 + 4y^2 = x^2

8y dy/dt = 2x dx/dt

when x = 12, y = 5.454

8(5.454) = 2(12) dx/dt

dx/dt = 1.818
